Hi,

I need to resolve on an asap basis how to best copy a file from one folder to another on a network. The idea is to have the computer name and destination path in advance. Copying should be from a 9x machine to NT/2K/XP.

For the sake of speed I've tossed lots of points for this question, as I'm sure I'll have some real good ideas.

Thanks!

Hi jkr,

Your answer is the simplest, most elegant and, after some trial and error, it worked. The problem is that you only gave a destination path. The function needs that and the filename, plus a TRUE or FALSE as a 3rd parameter.

Thanks for the help!
