How to catch EXECUTE command errors/messages.

Hello,

Is there a way to retrieve the error message that cmd.exe gives when I run this sentence in my QV script?

EXECUTE cmd.exe /C del "H:\file.csv" /q;

My point is that the file could be opened by a third party then the file would not be deleted, and no error or message will be return.

Thanks.

Ginés.

try with

EXECUTE cmd.exe /C  del "yourfile" /q  2>  delete.err;

the error should be written in the file delete.err

and then you can read (if exists) the file with Qlik

It would be nicer if this is captured by qlikview, but thanks, it worked.
