Compile Error in VB

I have the following code which i want to use to copy a file from one location to another.


Set fsoobject = CreateObject("scripting.FileSystemObject")
fsoobject.copyfile ("c:\wachovia\new.txt", "c:\Wachovia\Backupfiles\" & combinestring, "False")

vb compiler is telling me that there is a "Compile Error , Expected: ="  

any ideas on what should be done to get this piece of code working.

Thank You

here just do this :


Set fsoobject = CreateObject("scripting.FileSystemObject")
x = fsoobject.copyfile ("c:\wachovia\new.txt", "c:\Wachovia\Backupfiles\" & combinestring, "False")

I tried and tested it with the following code because I dont have them directorys:

Set fsoobject = CreateObject("scripting.FileSystemObject")
x = fsoobject.copyfile("c:\new.txt", "D:\new.txt" & combinestring, "False")

and that worked for me. I had the code inside of a command button. I dont know if that is any help though lol.

fsoobject.copyfile "c:\wachovia\new.txt", "c:\Wachovia\Backupfiles\" & combinestring, "False"

or

call fsoobject.copyfile ("c:\wachovia\new.txt", "c:\Wachovia\Backupfiles\" & combinestring, "False")

remove the parens from the copyfile line:
fsoobject.copyfile "c:\wachovia\new.txt", "c:\Wachovia\Backupfiles\" & combinestring, "False"

or use call
call fsoobject.copyfile("c:\wachovia\new.txt", "c:\Wachovia\Backupfiles\" & combinestring, "False")

and you don't need the quotes around the word false.  Its a boolean not a string.
