Hey all, I’m looking for some code that I can run as a VB script or VB application to open a directory E.g. C:\windows>adnew, Copy a file to this Dir (C:\windows>adnew) and then Rename the Directory.
I don’t know much about VB so any help will do.

You will need two VB statements:
Filecopy
Name

Use the VB online help to see syntax and examples.

There is no need to "open a directory".

Here's a link to the FileSystemObject.  I know there are probably VB intrensic objects to do that type of stuff, but I find working with FSO to be the easiest way to deal with files and directories

Hope that helps
