Geophysics data processing!

seems like i might be going big for my first attempt at this?


I want to process multiple sequentially numbered folders through software that requires loads of routine button pushes, I've recorded UI button presses but failed opening different folders. Any help pointing me in the right direction or reframing my questions to post back here would be great


The routine within the processing software is:


1 open C/specific_folder

2 open sub-folder arbitrary_name2022.05.01_001

3 press ui button ‘process’ (that also creates new_folder in sub-folder)

4 open Windows Explorer to C/specific_folder

5 move file always01.same from C/specific_folder to arbitrary_name2022.05.01_001/…../new_folder

6 within processing software press ui button ‘process2’


7 open C/specific_folder

8 open sub-folder maybe-diff2022.05.01_002

9 press ui button ‘process’ (that also creates new_folder in sub-folder)

10 open Windows Explorer to C/specific_folder

11 move file always02.same from C/specific_folder to maybe-diff2022.05.01_002/…../new_folder

12 within processing software press ui button ‘process2’




there's lots more processing steps but it's just variations on the above

and i'm currently using PAD trial version
