Force Folder Actions to notice changed files
Authored by: esbenab on Mar 31, '10 01:18:41AM

I must recommend Launchd(eamon), using Lingon.app it's easy to set up that the folder is watched and subsequently a script run when there are changes.

This can be done as low as file level on the individual files.

I also suggested launchd. Maybe we should submit as a 'hint' as is seems that Rob is ignoring this suggestion even though he said that he would be interested in a more elegant ways to accomplish this.

Sorry, not intentionally ignoring -- just got too busy with new job and old job transition to keep following this thread. I will look into <tt>launchd</tt> to replace my script.

Also, since I posted this, we have switched to FileMaker Pro for tracking the data, and then I use a FMPro script to dump data files that Excel then uses to create the sales report. It's the best of both worlds; I have FMPro's data management capabilities, and Excel's reporting and number crunching abilities.
