this uses the drive, directory, and file list boxes on a form.


Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim a As String
    Dim b As String
    If File1.ListCount > 0 Then                'if files in the selected dir

        For i = 0 To File1.ListCount - 1            'for all the files
           FileCopy file1.list(i), "c:\whateverdir\" & file1.list(i)
        Next                                        'continue for other files
    End If
End Sub
