    Re: move jpg files

    It is easy enough using Windows API functions like FindFirstFile/FindNextFile/FindClose/GetFileSize to enumerate the files and check their sizes, then MoveFile/CopyFile to move/copy the files.

    Unfortunately I don't use VB6, so cannot help you more.
    However, you could find the code examples for VBA.

    Are going to implement this "search for jpg files bigger than 10k on drive c: then move/copy them to a new folder on another hard drive" in VB6 or in VBA or in VB.Net?

    If you "do not know any Coding at All" then why do you ask it in the Programming Forum?
    Please, note:
    Forum: Visual Basic 6.0 Programming
    Ask questions about VB 6.0 (or earlier versions) or help others by answering their question.

    Please, note:
    Because I thought this was the place to get some idea how to do what I wanted and to be shown how to do it

    WE have to LEARN som time

    You asked it in a Programming Forum! it means you are going to answer about programming, not about the complete solution! Doesn't it?

    I presume that one has to ask a question to answer one
