How to trap 'Access Denied' with CopyFile

Hello,
I am using the CopyFile API function to copy a file from the user's machine to a network directory.  Under most circumstances it should work fine, but I have identified two conditions where it might fail and I need to be able to trap them:
1. the destination file already exists (in which case I need to prompt them for the next step - it may be overwrite, it may be rename, it may be cancel, up to them)
2. they don't have write access to this network directory (in which case I need to throw an error and bail)

All I have been able to do so far is test if CopyFile(parameters) = 0, but this doesn't tell me very much.

By the way here is the declaration in case it helps.
Private Declare Function CopyFile Lib "kernel32" Alias "CopyFileA" _
(ByVal lpExistingFileName As String, ByVal lpNewFileName As String, _
ByVal bFailIfExists As Long) As Long

Thanks for your help

Call GetLastError API immidiately after CopyFile:

Public Declare Function GetLastError Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetLastError" () As Long

If it returns 5, this means Access is Denied.

Thanks AlexFM.
GetLastError didn't seem to work but from the article you linked I noticed Err.LastDllError - this is what I needed.  Exactly what I was looking for!
