make sure that you have included a Reference (Project/References) to the Microsoft Scripting Runtime library.  That is where the FileSystemObject is defined.

Hi Arthur_Wood. I did Reference (Project/References) to the Microsoft Scripting Runtime library. There is no longer a compile error, but nothing was copied. Any idea what happened ?

 IPsec_Folder = Dir$(Directory_Box)

The  IPsec_Folder  always  result in blank.

what is IPsec_Folder ( is it a control or a variable?) and what is the contents of the variable Directory_Box when this code executes?

Put a Break point on the line

 IPsec_Folder = Dir$(Directory_Box)

and examine the variables involved.
