File Parsing and Copy Script (Python or VBS/VBA or MapBasic etc)


I use a program called MapInfo which opens a set of files based on the file list/instructions in a workspace file.

I need an interactive script written in either Python, VBS/VBA or MapBasic (Or even Windows Batch or PowerShell if you think it's possible) ... - whatever you feel the most comfortable in, as long as the source code is provided and it can execute with only the python runtime installed.

This script needs to:

1) Prompt for the file path of, and then Read from, the Workspace (.WOR) file - it's standard ASCII Text file attached ([login to view URL]).

2) Extract the list of the file names and file paths from the Workspace file

3) Extract the list of Group's from the workspace file, and match the data file names against the Groups

4) Prompt for a destination folder, then create folders in the destination using the list of Groups

5) Copy the files (within the file system) from the file paths using wildcards into the new folders created.

I have attached a PDF which contains instructions and a ZIP file which contains the sample data and example script output, please read the instructions in [login to view URL] completely BEFORE BIDDING!!!.

NOTE THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE POSTED THIS, PLEASE LOOK AT STEPS 3) AND 4) ABOVE AND READ THE PDF BEFORE BIDDING - The previous freelancer attempted to build this in both Python and PowerShell and could not! It's not as easy as it seems!

This is NOT a simple job of copying files from a list, please understand that you must match the group layers to the folders! Please ask if you would like further explanation.
