Need to search contents of text files on a windows network drive....

I am trying to search the content of a directory on a windows network drive for that contains .sas files (essentially text files) for a certain text string. Find does not seem to do this. Any ideas/suggestions?
When I copy a file to my desktop I can do it easily, but that is not an option.

Uh my opinion GREATLY affects Apple's claim to windows compatibility......unless there is a solution out there. My firm is windows-based and we have a terabyte or so of data and files related to various stuff all buried in subfolders..and all I want is to search one folder for one text string.
I'm praying for a solution here.....

  • Scheduling multiple tab BO XI3 report needs to save into multiple text file

    I have BO XI 3 Desktop Intelligence reports, those reports contains multiple tabs. Once after scheduling these reports the output needs to save as different text files (each tab as separate text file). Generally when select output as text file we will get the text file with the data of current tab, but in this scenario I want all the tabs data into different text files. I guess we can do this with macro. But I am not good in macro development, hope somebody can help me.
    Could you please help out for the same!

    Thanks Dan.. I made chenges in code as per your suggestion.. its working fine in DeskI -> local PC
    But this is not working in InfoView level... when i scheduled the same report its not saving into multiple text files... can you please have look...
    macro code as follows:-
    Public Sub SaveAsText()
    Dim StrTxtPath As String
    Dim BusDoc As busobj.Document
    Set BusDoc = ThisDocument
    Dim BusRep As Report
    Dim I As Integer
    On Error GoTo ErrHandler
    'StrTxtPath = "\common\Reporting\"

    For I = 1 To BusDoc.Reports.Count
    Set BusRep = BusDoc.Reports.Item(I)
    BusRep.ExportAsText (StrTxtPath & BusRep.Name)
    Next I
    Exit Sub
    End Sub
    When i run this macro through DeskI.. its saving the report as multiple .txt files with respective number of tabs... but the same thing is not working when i tried in scheduling...
    Can you please suggest me what are the changes needs to be done...

  • HT201250 Hello i am using TimeMachine to back-up entire Mac image (data + system) on an usb-local drive. I would like (on top of it) add a specific plan to back up some files on a remote network drive. Does TimeMachine support multiple back-up plans ? How

    Hello i am using TimeMachine to back-up entire Mac image (data + system) on an usb-local drive. I would like (on top of it) add a specific plan to back up some files on a remote network drive. Does TimeMachine support multiple back-up plans ? How ?

    Time Machine is capable of backing up to multiple locations, and can be used to back up to both a local hard drive and a networked drive (provided that that drive is in or connected to a Time Capsule or another Mac that is sharing it over the network). The catch, though, is that you can't specify different things to back up to different destinations. Whatever you exclude from Time Machine backups is excluded from ALL backups, and whatever is included is included on all.
    So, get a large enough drive that you can back up everything you want in all locations, or use something else for maintaining the network backup.
    More information on these topics can be found here:

    How do I set up Time Machine to a Time Capsule or Airport Extreme?

  • Sending Files over a Windows Network

    I am trying to send files from one computer to the other over a windows network. I have absolute path names of the two locations.
    Can you just use "File.renameTo(File);" to pull this off?
    Is there a fast way to move files over a windows network?
    Thanks so much for your help

    With File.renameTo()? Yes.
    between directories on different local drives? Yes.
    or different nodes in a network?I'm not sure what you mean by that, which is most probably my lack of knowledge about computer networking.
    Here's the test I performed:
    File a = new File("C:/Temp/test.txt");
    // 'E:' is (physicaly) a different hard drive than 'C:'
    File b = new File("E:/Temp/test.txt");   
    // 'Athene' is a home-SAN-drive/server connected to my router
    File c = new File("//Athene/SHARE/Temp/test.txt");
    System.out.println(b.renameTo(c));Both print true and in both cases I have checked to see if the files really were moved, which was the case.

  • Searching for a text file

    hi i want to search for a file in the same folder as my project and read the contents of that file ... i know how to read from text file but i just need to know how i can search in the folder to look for a txt file called me.txt and open it for reading.. any suggestions?
    thanks in advance
    please provide some code for me... thx alot

    Look at the File class in Java API. You can create a file object by passing the file name.
    Then you can check whether the file exists or not by using exist methos of the File. (Of course, you need to know the path of the file).

  • Binary search in a text file.

    Is it possible to carry out binary search directly in the text file without passing the file data into a List data, in order to save RAM?

    If the file is sorted, and if you know what byte position each record begins at, then, yes, using RandomAccessFile you can do this.
    I don't know if it's really the best approach though. If the file's not all that big, or if the relevant parts of its content can be represented in more compact form, then sorting in memory will be simpler and quicker.

  • Write diadem search results to text file

    Is there a solution within DIAdem for exporting specific information from a search result into a text file? For example: I perform a search which returns all of the files, groups, and/or channels which I want to work with; now I would like to have, say, the file paths of all the results of my search exported to a text file. Is this possible? I could not find a direct way of doing this, but perhaps a script already exists for doing stuff like this?

    Hi mrclary,
    I did not have this code handy, but I was able to whip it up for you.  Let me know if you have any questions.

  • Searching content of .dmg files

    Is there any way to do a "contents" search in a .dmg file?
    I have several .dmg files, made with DiskUtility , encrypted, and then opened as a virtual disk, under Devices on my MacBook Air and used to store files.
    But I sometimes want to search the contents of those files. (I am doing all this when the file is open and listed under Devices)
    I can't get Spotlight to search it,  even when the following Apple's instructions on how to index folders or volumes,
    I also tried using direct instructions with the terminal using,
    sudo mdutil -i on /Volumes/volume_name
    This one is particularly curious because it gives different results with different files. When I created a new test file it returned,
    Air:~ DAir$ sudo mdutil -i on /Volumes/test1
              Indexing enabled.
    Even so, I still could not get spotlight or search in a finder window to reliably find any content.
    (sometimes if I opened, made a small alteration and then saved a file it would find content in that file, although not in any other files on the volume.)
    but when I use this same command with an older volume of the same sort it always returns the result, "indexing disabled"
    sudo mdutil -i on /Volumes/Error12Codes
              Indexing disabled.
    It can never find any content in these older files.
    Likewise, the program EasyFind will not find content on these volumes even when set to find "file contents"
    Can anyone help with this? How can I search the content of a .dmg volume?

    A test .dmg file that I just made does have .spotlight -V100 in it.
    Still it will not find a word in the contents of a file, unless I first open that file, make a small change in it, save it, and close it. Then it seems that it has indexed that file. 
    In fact it would seem that when that happened it indexed all the files in that .dmg volume, and I can now find the contents of any file there.
    But the .dmg files that I made earlier do not have the .spotlight-v100 in them and spotlight will not find any contents.
    And still if I give the command "sudo mdutil -i on /Volumes/Error12Codes" it returns
    "Indexing disabled"
    Putting these .dmg files into the privacy section of the Spotlight preferences and then removing them as Apple suggests, seems to have no effect.
    What is going on?
