Loop through files in a folder

* This article, and all our great .NET Development documentation, Is available on the .NET Development menu

In writing Dynamics integrations, I'm frequently asked to read a directory of files and process them somehow. Sometimes they're XML, sometimes text. 

This piece of code is the main loop for that task. It's not ground breaking or brilliant; but it saves me 30-60 minutes of coding to have it ready so that I can copy and paste into an app. 

The basic logic is this:

Create 'done' and 'error' folders to move the files into after processing


Process the file

Move the file to 'done'

Trap errors

Move the file to 'error

Handle the error
