Question Adding a Fileinput loop to exsiting script.

Smilie I'm very confused on what I need to do. I've looked at if, while, but I can't seem to visualize where in my current script to put the commands.
I'm looking to read a directory /ERD/iface/data/ocom/citi/idd because there will be multible files, but I need to process them one at a time. The Process is copy the file, encrypt the file, send the file, delete the file. How do I loop this? Thank you VERY much.

# Set local variables.
FILEIN=decrypt*  (all files are named decrypt_test_move_YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS)

# ONLY send mail and first cp lines need to change below this line. #
# Error_Successmsg routine function.
mail -s " $SN failed in $FAILSCRIPT " mdurette@*****.com </home/pgp/CFSUSA/notes/failcfs
echo " $SUCCESSMSG was successful "
# Change to the $SAPDIRIN directory and copy the file from SAP to PGP
if [ $START = 0 ]; then
cp $FILEIN /home/pgp/CFSUSA/outgoing_files/decrypted/$FILEOUT > $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
echo "The copy from SAP to PGP RC= $COPY" >> $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
exit $START
# If the copy was successful, encrypt the file.
if [ $COPY = 0 ]; then
/home/pgp/scripts/$ENCRYPT \
echo "The encrypting of the decrypt file RC= $PGP" >> $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
exit $COPY
# If encryption was successful, test if EDI server is up.
if [ $PGP = 0 ]; then
/etc/ping -c 1 ecprod >> $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
echo "The pinging of ECPROD server RC= $PING" >> $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
exit $PGP
# If encryption and ping was successful, send the file out.
if [ $PING = 0 ]; then
/usr/local/bin/$SEND >> $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
echo "The encrypted file has been sent RC= $SEND" >> $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
mail -s "Script Citibank IDD File System" -c "mdurette@*****.com" \
exit $PING
# If the send was successful, delete the SAP file, decrypted file encrypted file.
if [ $SEND = 0 ]; then
rm -f $FILEIN >> $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
rm -f $FILEOUT.pgp >> $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
echo "The Decrypted RC= $REMV2 file and the Encrypted RC= $REMV3 file have been deleted. " >> $MSGDIR/$SN 2>&1
exit $SEND
# End of script.

To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.
