Batch copy files from a list to specific directories on the same list - please help! RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I have been tasked to search and copy files from a folder to their corresponding folders based on a simple list. Our list is made up of candidate names and .docx, .pdf representing their CV-s. I was able to batch produce folders with the candidates' names based on the list but I have no idea on how to copy or move the CVs from the main folder to their own, individual folders. 

    Is there a script that I can work with to achieve this?

  • Could you be more specific as to what examples you are referring to? Unfortunately, I only found solutions to copy files based on a list to a specified (fixed and single) folder. This is not what I was trying to achieve...

    May I also add, that specific example or solution would be highly appreciated since I am just a tech enthusiast with virtually no coding experience whatsoever. Thanks!
