Subject:  Awarding you points for "Copy Directory" problem.

This is a "Dummy" question to allow me to award you points for your great help. Apparently this is the only way I can split points on a question where several Experts assist. Just "Answer" this posting and that will enable me to grade you "A" with the points.

Keep up the good work.

Tim.

I used NONE of the suggested ideas exactly. I realized I had misstated my problem.  The problem was that at level 2 (of the directory tree) there is no way to copy to level one with another name in one move.

Eg copy c:\dir1 to C:\dir2 will give dir2 with dir1 as a subdirectory. A simple move and rename was what I needed. But all your thoughts helped me see that.
