a missing ';' after the ']' ?
I don't know - what's the error message?

Vgresh,

I added the below logic and it seems I am doing wrong by comparing 2 different file formats. Here the sourcefile pattern and targetfile pattern are different:

Quote:
for file do
if [[ "$file" = "$sourcefilepattern" ]] then
mv "$file" $arch
fi
if [[ "$file" = "$targetfilepattern" ]] then
mv "$file" $targetarchive
fi
Thanks any way

once again, what exactly happens? any error messages?

Debug output:
