vbscrpit end program

I want to use a
If Err.number <> 0 then
             end
end if

I want to do something of this manner in VBscript. It doesn't let me do it. I have to end the program if it doesn't find the file. I dn't know how to do it. Please help. Thank you. This is a one liner, I guess.

You can check for the existence of a file like this:

    Dim fileName As String
   
    fileName = "c:\somefile.txt"
    If Dir(fileName) <> "" Then
        ' do something with filename in here...      
    Else
        MsgBox fileName, vbCritical, "File not found"
    End If

Hope that helps you,

Do you mean something like this?  This will check for the existence of a file and terminate the script if it doesn't find it.

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If objFSO.FileExists("File path and name") Then
    'Do something with the file
Else
    Wscript.Quit
End If
