Find File and copy to new folder

Access 2003 vba

What I have:

 a folder

C:Program Files\Data

I need a function from a command button:

to search for files with a like statement


I need some type of a parameter query where I put a string into:

In this case:

BR1RYK


I need the function  to look inside the folder and find all the files with this inside the file name
10_58_AM_BR1RYK_P-03272008.xls



and place it into a new folder:

C:Program Files\Data\found


Thanks

Sub xcopyFile()
Dim s, sFile, fpath, dPath
dPath = "C:Program Files\Data\found"
s = InputBox("enter string")
s = "*" & s & "*"
fpath = "C:Program Files\Data\"
sFile = Dir(fpath & s & ".xls")

While sFile <> ""
    FileCopy fpath & sFile, dPath & "\" & sFile

    sFile = Dir
Wend
End Sub

If you want them moved instead of copied then you might wanna add the kill statement to delete the file after the copy
