run-time error '70'

I get runtine error '70' while copying file from one location to another. Can anyone tell me what is the reason. This code was working perfectly in the past.

Name "C:\Program Files\Comet3\NURESULTS.txt" As "C:\Program Files\Comet3\NURESULTS"

src = "C:\Program Files\Comet3\NURESULTS"
des = "C:\Program Files\Nutech\Client\NURESULTS"
FileCopy src, des  <----- EROR LINE

But, is the application using the same id?

Try copying to different directories and different files.   Are all affect the same way?

FileCopy is used to copy file(s) but not directory.

you may try this instead:

src = "C:\Program Files\Comet3\NURESULTS\*.*"
des = "C:\Program Files\Nutech\Client\NURESULTS\*.*"
FileCopy src, des

des = "C:\Program Files\Nutech\Client\NURESULTS\NURESULTS.txt"
des2 = "C:\Program Files\Nutech\Client\NURESULTS\NURESULTS"

hello
since you have not permission, the run-time error '70' occured while coping the file to another desntination.
well, maybe you are a limited account and have not permission to C:\Program Files\Nutech or its directories.
so it is because of permission.
Regards!
