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.

CopyFile ( "c:\\mypath\\myfile.txt", "\\\\server\\share\\targetdir");

should do it...

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!
