Whitespace while using execute external command [message #1523307] Mon, 22 December 2014 21:29 Go to next message

I am attempting to copy some files from one folder to another using the execute external command test action. I can't seem to get Jubula to handle whitespace in the path name.

This works:
Xcopy "C:\\setup.log" "C:\\ToddTest"

This does not work with a space in the folder name:
Xcopy "C:\\setup.log" "C:\\Todd Test"

Can someone tell me how to use the correct quotes (single and/or double) to complete this command? I have tried all sorts of combinations.

Thanks!

Hey I just figured out how to do this using part of another form post. It turns out that you need to break the command in two.

Command string :
"cd 'C:\Todd Test' " & Xcopy 'C:\setup.log'

Hope this helps someone else!
