I'm new to VB.  I've been writing VBScripting for a few however.  My question is what component do I add to my project to be able to use the FileSystemObject?

Then use something like this:

Dim fs As New FileSystemObject

'code here

set fs = nothing

alternativly you can go:

Dim fs As Object

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'Stuff
Set fs = Nothing

but this is using "late binding" which is slower... Microsoft suggests using early binding, as in example above...

Great.  Thats exactly what I needed.  I had the early binding set.  Which I'm glad that you posted that cause it confirmed that I was doing it correctly.

Thanks again
