    Dim FileSystemObject As Object
    Set FileSystemObject = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    FileSystemObject.CopyFile "c:\file.txt", "H:\file.txt"

    Hmm The thread says resolved but the moethod shown in post 2 will not do what is asked in post 1.

    The Vb Function for this is
    Code:
    Name PathFileName As NewPathFileName

    Copy is different than move, copy makes a copy it does not move the original.

    A lot of people seem to use FSO anymore, I guess that is what they have learned to use or think it is easier but it really is not the way it should be done. This is an object that was created for scripting and even though it works and can be used in VB, vb has its own methods for doing all these things and they are all faster while using less resources.

    In VB CopyFile makes a copy of a file as you have done with the FSO
    Name is used to rename or move a file
