How to run a command from the OK button in VB script?

This should be an easy one for all you programmers.

Ho do I create a dialogue box in VB script that when the users click OK, runs a command (copy the contents of a folder to their local machine) but if they click cancel the script ends?

Hi wmcdade,

If Msgbox("Do you want to copy these files", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
    'Copy the files
Else
    'Don't copy them
End If

Hello wmcdade,

you could do something like
----------
        If MsgBox("Do you want to run the copy action?", 1) = 1 Then
          'Run Command
        End If
----------

MsgBox("Do you want to run the copy action?", 1) the 1 here means vbOkCancelButton
= 1 the 1 here means vbOk

so you run the command if someone clicks ok

hope this helps a bit
