You need to use file upload tools to do that.
I am using
http://www.softartisans.com

SA-FileUp?
It is preety handy and cool.
If you nwat to use then I cna give you some source.
FileSystemObject works on server. If I underestand it correctly you wnat to copy one file from client side to the server and that mean suploading some files to the server.

go to www.dundas.com and download the free Dundas Upload component.  It comes with examples and documentation.
I am using it.  But only if you can register the component on your server using c:\winnt\regsvr32 DSUpload.dll.  If it is not your server, then ask the administrator for permission.
There is a pure ASP code to upload, but I don't use it.  Maybe someone can help you to get the code.

here is some more info.  some of it overlaps other comments...


Uploading typically requires a component,
either the posting acceptor from Microsoft,
ASPUpload from http://www.aspupload.com/,
SAFileUp from http://www.softartisans.com,
ActiveFile from http://www.infomentum.com/activefile/,
SimpleASPUpload FREE from http://www.asphelp.com/aspsimpleupload/ 
or ScriptUtilities from http://www.pstruh.cz/help/ScptUtl/library.htm (which also has "PureASP" -- a way to upload
without a component).

My personal preference is ASPUpload because of its excellent documentation and its additional methods
to change permissions, attributes and ownership of files the instant they're uploaded. It also supports
access to the Form collection, while many other solutions do not.
Most components come with documentation on the form and script required to make the upload happen.

also some posting acceptor links:

Good post John.

Another great FREE upload tool is ABCUpload, http://www.websupergoo.com/abcupload-1.htm

I personally use ASPSimpleUpload, but I have been playing with ABCUpload and like it...
