Upload file if exists (filename changes daily)

Hi All

Im using powershell to upload a file if it exists, its a daily file with the date appended to the filename:
# Logging
$session.SessionLogPath = $log
# Connect
Write-Host "Connecting to DCK FTP..."
$session.Open($sessionOptions)
 
# Retrieve filename from local path
$localFile = Get-ChildItem $localPath -Filter $task*.zip | % { $_.FullName }
 
if ($session.FileExists($localFile)) {
    # Upload
    $session.PutFiles($localFile, $remotePath).Check()
    exit 0
}
else {
    Write-Host "Local Test file does not exist"
    exit 1
}

here is a snippit from the log:

> 2020-06-11 16:43:45.658 Script: stat -- "\\layafsp3\InspireFtp\Testing110620.zip"
. 2020-06-11 16:43:45.658 Listing file "\\layafsp3\InspireFtp\Testing110620.zip".

Re: Upload file if exists (filename changes daily)

You cannot use Session.FileExists to test for an existence of a local file.
Use Test-Path cmdlet instead.
See https://winscp.net/eng/docs/script_checking_file_existence#local
Though it makes no sense anyway. You do not want to test if a file exist, you want to test if Get-ChildItem returned any file. So just do:

if ($localFile) {
   ...
}
