I am using the following sections of code:

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fs.DeleteFile("c:\*.bak")

and

fs.CopyFile "source.dat", "c:\backup.bak"


how can i get results from these commands to check that they have completed successfully or not?

Try to use on error...

On error Goto err1:
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fs.DeleteFile("c:\*.bak")

msgbox("Delete Successful")
Exit sub

err:
msgbox("delete not successful")

I'm already using an on error for the procedure, i was wondering if there was anyway to get a result from these particular commands.

For example, I am not using force delete opn read only files, so when i made a file read only, it doesn't get deleted, but it doesn't get picked up as an error either.
