You could use vb to make a batch file. Then use "shell" to run it. This would let you use any DOS commands.

you can use the filesystemobject..for example:

Dim filesys As Object

Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

filesys.CopyFile "c:\mydocuments\letters\*.doc", "c:\tempfolder\"

Use the FileSystemObject (add a reference to Microsoft Scripting Runtime) and use

Dim X as new FileSystemObject

X.CopyFile "c:\*.*", "\\target\folder\"
