Today I want to share little knowledge that how we can get the latest file in different folder with same name.
For example we have text file with name employee ID + extension (.txt) in different folders may be department wise or deputation wise. Now the task is how to get the latest file of an employee from different folder.
Here is the function that gives you the file.
You must import (vb.net)/ Using (C#) the following assemblies:
Now call the function and passed it employee id and root directory.
Private Function GetLatestFile(ByVal EmpId As String, ByVal rootDirectory As String) As String
''Get Direcotry list order by CreateTime Desc
Dim strPath As String = String.Empty
Dim directories As IEnumerable(Of DirectoryInfo) = From path In System.IO.Directory.GetDirectories(rootDirectory) Let directory = New System.IO.DirectoryInfo(path) Order By directory.LastAccessTime Descending Select directory
If directories IsNot Nothing Then
For Each drIno As DirectoryInfo In directories
If File.Exists(drIno.FullName + "\" + EmpId + ".txt") Then
strPath = drIno.FullName + "\" + EmpId + ".txt"
