    Have you tried running it on an account that doesn't have sysop access? I know it's a stupid question.. but I am not exactly sure what you are trying to accomplish.

    That's what I just said. It works fine here because I have the #1 account, but on Talamasca not having 99 and not having the System password it won't work. I designed it so that ppl who had Flag K would be able to upload and maintain the database, but alas it also seems that they must be a SysOp... :(

    Ok it's more clear what you are trying to do. But, what database are you trying to modify? The BBS File Directories as Configured in SCFG? If so this works, but be warned that a file removed by a User with ;USERREMOVEFILE is deleted from the Hard Disk Instantly. Unlike if a SysOp does a "R" Command from the File Menu. It will not ask you if you want to delete it from the disk also.

    NOTE :
    For this to work a user must have "FLAG K" *and* "Exemption R" (Remove Files)

    Now, if you are talking about something other than the File Directories please ignore this :-)

    I just inserted this into the top of the STR_CMDS.SRC File in SBBS\EXEC. ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    # STR_CMDS.SRC

    # Global String Command Module for Synchronet

    # This is NOT a command shell, DO NOT add to SCFG->Command Shells

    # This module is loaded from command shells with the EXEC_BIN function

    # It contains mostly sysop commands (i.e. ;DOS)

    # The command string must be the current string (obtained with SETSTR, GETSTR
    # or similar function) before this module is loaded.

    !include nodedefs.inc

    # Remove any trailing spaces

    truncsp str

    logstr

    # End Original Code
    # -------------------------------------
    # Begin Inserted Code

    compare_str "USERUPLOAD"
    if_true
    compare_ars FLAG K
    if_true
    file_upload_bulk
    return
    end_if
    end_if

    compare_str "USERREMOVEFILE"
    if_true
    compare_ars FLAG K
    if_true
    print "\r\nchRemove/Edit File(s)\r\n"
    getfilespec
    if_true
    file_remove
    end_if
    return
    end_if
    end_if

    # End Inserted Code
    # --------------------------------------
    # Resume Original Code

    compare_ars SYSOP
    if_true

    I thought this also, but are you trying to U/L a file alreayd on disk but not in the database? If so, the SRC I posted earlier works.

    I don't want to put this in the BBS file stores configed in SCFG. I want to upload this to %jkeps\\latest.kep.

    Yes. But you could create an area in SCFG that pointed to your special directory. Or, you could just "EXEC %!fdsz rz".
