This question is different from the answer here Infix form of PutAppend ( >>> ) does not work with variable becasue it is dealing with folders and not filenames.
I have a file path which I save to a varible using the
FileNameSetter. I then use the
StringJoin to add the last folder name to this path. When I do this with a notebook file and then use
NotebookEvaluate for example, Mathematica understands that this variable is a file location and executes without a problem. However when I do the same thing for a package and use the
Get (or <<) Mathematica doesn't seem to understand that the variable is a location.
Setting up the file location
FileNameSetter[Dynamic[DashboardFile]]; DashboardFile SetDirectory[DirectoryName[DashboardFile]] PackageLocation = DirectoryName[DashboardFile] <> "Packages" "\\\\ecsdbn-srv-02\\lara_jordan$\\Cleaner Kumba\\my redev\\tabview \ v1.6.nb" "\\\\ecsdbn-srv-02\\lara_jordan$\\Cleaner Kumba\\my redev" "\\\\ecsdbn-srv-02\\lara_jordan$\\Cleaner Kumba\\my redev\\Packages"
Setting up the package location
PackageA = PackageLocation <> "\\HA1Package.m" << PackageA << "\\\\ecsdbn-srv-02\\lara_jordan$\\Cleaner Kumba\\my redev\\Packages\\HA1Package.m" "\\\\ecsdbn-srv-02\\lara_jordan$\\Cleaner Kumba\\my redev\\Packages\\HA1Package.m" Get::noopen: Cannot open PackageA. >> $Failed
In the third line in the code above I have simply copied and pasted the value of
PackageA just to the right on the
<< so I know that the location stored in the variable
PackageA is valid.
I need this to work becasue I have hundreds of packages where each new user will just be asked to enter one file location that will automatically be used for all packages.
