Hi Experts,

I am trying to copy a list of zip files from a shared drive to my drive.
The problem is that the zip files differ slightly (time stamped) and I can only pull one down

\\128.xx.xxx.xxx\c$\calypso\calypso\Calculator8806_OFFLINE_60008.log_034004_2008_6_10.zip
\\128.xx.xxx.xxx\c$\calypso\calypso\Calculator8806_OFFLINE_60008.log_052629_2008_6_10.zip
\\128.xx.xxx.xxx\c$\calypso\calypso\Calculator8806_OFFLINE_60008.log_070133_2008_6_10.zip
\\128.xx.xxx.xxx\c$\calypso\calypso\Calculator8806_OFFLINE_60008.log_084614_2008_6_10.zip
\\128.xx.xxx.xxx\c$\calypso\calypso\Calculator8806_OFFLINE_60008.log_095722_2008_6_10.zip
\\128.xx.xxx.xxx\c$\calypso\calypso\Calculator8806_OFFLINE_60008.log_112157_2008_6_10.zip
\\128.xx.xxx.xxx\c$\calypso\calypso\Calculator8806_OFFLINE_60008.log_113838_2008_6_10.zip
    1 file(s) copied.

I guess what I need to do is give each copy a counter value but Im having problems doing this.

Can you please help.

Thanks,

There are several choices.

1 - Copy everything using gs121's suggestion.
2 - Copy the latest one.
3 - Copy all but rename them with a counter.

Which door will you choose? Remember, you can only choose one door!!!
