I want the computer to create a file (namely A:\DAT1.DAT) when the user presses CmdFile_click. I also want code that will find if that file is already on the disk and ask the user if they wish to replace it.

a more complete example:

Private Sub CmdFile_Click()
    Dim exists As Boolean
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim filesys As Object
    Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    exists = filesys.FileExists("c:\windows\desktop\dat1.dat")
    If exists Then
        i = MsgBox("File Exists Already.  Do you wish to overwrite it?", _
            vbYesNo)
        If i = vbYes Then _
            filesys.CreateTextFile "c:\windows\desktop\dat1.dat", True
    Else
        filesys.CreateTextFile ("c:\windows\desktop\dat1.dat")
   End If
End Sub
