You can use the CopyFile method to copy files. You need to have a FileSystemObject set first however.

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fso.copyfile "source path", "destination path", overwrite

The overwrite argument being true or false, its true by default.

You can also use the plain Copy method as well but you need to get the file first.

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set MyFile = fso.GetFile("c:\testfile.txt")
MyFile.Copy ("c:\windows\desktop\test2.txt")

But can I use this to copy from the clients pc to the web server?

I get path not found even when I use server.mappath.

Any suggestions?

Sure you can add additional statements that can create a mapped drive on the fly and then delete it when you are done with it. You will have to have admin privledges to be able to accomplish these with little problem though. So you need a small script that will:

1.) Create a connection to the sevrer.
2.) Copy files to the server.
3.) Terminate connection.

Correct?

Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "x:", "\\YourServer\YourShare"
Set MyFile = fso.GetFile("c:\the file you want to copy.txt")
MyFile.Copy ("x:\YourDestination")
WshNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive "x:"

Thanks for the help TooKoolKris however:
When I tried the WScript code you just posted I get:
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01a8'
Object required: 'WScript'
 
By the way this is a Web application using VBScript, JavaScript, HTML in ASP.
I need the file from the users pc, which I find with <INPUT type=file>,  to be copied/uploaded to the web server. With the code below I get
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a004c'
Path not found

Dim fso, f
src=str_FilePath ' path on users pc
des=(Server.MapPath("../files/")) ' It maps as c:\inetpub\wwwroot\webapp\files
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set f = fso.CopyFile(src, des, OverWriteFiles)
f.Close

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Well I can't explain why you're getting errors with that code bacause I've tested it fine on XP and 2000 Pro & Server and it works just fine on all three.

With the code that you are using, have you created a share on the server to where you want these files to be copied? Simply trying to map the drive to any ole file path isn't going to work. You need to create a share to map to.

@lastockUSDA, Did you go through the old question?. Read through the entire post ....Its fairly informative on the permissions issues involved.

As for the error with the code posted by TooKoolKris, change the code to

'>>Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")<<
Set WshNetwork = Server.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "x:", "\\YourServer\YourShare"
Set MyFile = fso.GetFile("c:\the file you want to copy.txt")
MyFile.Copy ("x:\YourDestination")
WshNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive "x:"

Cheers!!
