CopyFolder problem

Hi All,


1) I'm testing the CopyFolder method of FSO, and found that it does not copy files in the root source directory.  Is that normal?

I.e. if I have 3 files and 3 folders under the source directory, all, except the 3 files in the root source directory, were copied over to the target directory, includes files under the source's sub-directory.

2) How can I set the attributes of all files under a specific directory?

Thanks!

Hi

For yor first question , you can copy all folders and files from one folder to another.

Dim MyObj As New FileSystemObject
Dim MyFolder As Folder
Dim MyFile As File
Dim spath As String, dpath As String

spath = "SourcePath\SFolder"
dpath = "DestinationPath\DFolder"

If MyObj.FolderExists(spath) Then
    MyObj.CopyFolder spath, dpath
End If

This above "CopyFolder" will copy all folders and files.

2) To change attributes of all files in a folder

Set MyFolder = MyObj.GetFolder(dpath)

For Each MyFile In MyFolder.Files
    MyFile.Attributes = ReadOnly ' Whatever you want to set
Next

Hope this will solve ur problem.
