I am using forms4.5 and I have to check whether a file of the pattern *XYZ*.*(which is passed as a parameter) exists in the specific folder or not. The folder is present in the remote unix box. I have to connect it through my login credentials which will also be parameters.

Please help me how to do it.

Thanks in advance

Use the 'host' command to run a 'dir > tmp.txt' command and then use 'text_io' to read the 'tmp.txt' file.

Search this forum for 'text_io'.
