Try:

Name Replace$(Text1 & "\" & fileArr(i), "\\", "\") As Replace$(Text2 & "\" & newname, "\\", "\")

oops, should be simplified to:

Name Replace$(Text1, "\\", "\") As Replace$(Text2, "\\", "\")

of course, add the validation if necessary.

This is how i understood your question.

In VB, under Project, select references. Click 'Browse' and find a file scrrun.dll  (Should be in ...\System32 directory)
Click Open and OK.   Then use this code in you button.

For copiing:
------------------
Private Sub Command1_Click()

    Dim fso As New FileSystemObject
    fso.CopyFile Text1.Text, Text2.Text

End Sub


For moving:
------------------
Private Sub Command1_Click()

    Dim fso As New FileSystemObject
    fso.MoveFile Text1.Text, Text2.Text

End Sub
