FileItemize error

I am writing a script to gather all files in a particular folder. I store the filenames in a variable called prog32, then want to search this list for a certain filename, then remove it. My code is below:

prog32 = Fileitemize("%Dxr32_exe_Path%\*.*")
prog32cnt = ItemCount(prog32,@TAB)

exCNF      = ItemLocate("DRAWERS.CNF",%prog32%,@TAB)
exLGN      = ItemLocate("DXR.LGN",%prog32%,@TAB)

If %exCNF% > 0 Then ItemRemove(%exCNF%,%prog32%,@TAB)
If %exLGN% > 0 Then ItemRemove(%exLGN%,%prog32%,@TAB)

It runs fine until it gets to the "exCNF      = ItemLocate" line, then terminates. The debug logs show the following error:

prog32 = Fileitemize("Z:\jobs\EPSIIA\PROGRAMS\DXR\2013.04\PROGRAM\*.*")

WIL ERROR SUPPRESSED =>3246 (Ole Object: Object does not exist, or period used instead of a comma)

What am I doing wrong? I've double and triple checked the syntax, made sure there were no misplaced commas or quotes. I want to locate that string inside the list but it seems to fail every time I attempt to use ItemLocate on the prog32 list.


Nevermind, I figured it out. I had to remove the %'s inside the ItemLocate() function, and also I had to assign the same list to the ItemRemove() functions, as well as recheck the index after the first value was removed.


seems if you know the folder(s) and filename(s) maybe if fileexist("yourfile") == 1 Then Filedelete("yourfile") and save  the iteration.

You can ignore the above if your goal was to only remove the filenames from the list and not remove the files.
