I am looking for a way to make my script check the data it's trying to load and make sure it has been updated within the last 12 hours or so before continuing. Else I want it to loop and sleep for 10 seconds and then check again until the update has completed. I don't care if it loops indefinitely if the file doesn't update. I will manually stop the looping when I get to work in the morning and check into things if the update doesn't happen.
This is the text I have below.
do until (NOW()-Filetime(FCDATAQT.TXT))<.6
NOW()-Filetime() as TestTime
(txt, codepage is 1252, no labels, delimiter is ';', msq)
When I comment the looping structure, the field TestTime = roughly .12 at the moment. The loop continues indefinitely however. What can I do to end the loop if TestTime is less than .6? If I can make that happen, it would solve a great deal of issues for me and free up a lot of my time for more productive tasks.
