I need the below code to copy the file and when it does it is renaming it.  The only problem I need to modify it for a different project.  I needs to rename the file in the guard folder, but I won't know what the original filename is.  I tried doing a *.csv but that doesn't seem to work what would the correct syntax be?
'**********************************************************************
'  Visual Basic ActiveX Script
'************************************************************************
 
Function Main()
 
	dim fso
	dim d
	dim m
	dim y
 
	d = day(date)
	m = month(date)
	y =  year(date)
	
	if len(d) = 1 then d = "0" & d
	if len(m) = 1 then m = "0" & m
 
	set fso = createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 
	fso.Copyfile "C:\Clients\Strat\File Uploads\Customer Uploads\guard\test.csv", "C:\Clients\Strat\File Uploads\Customer Uploads\guard\guard.csv"
			
	Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
 
End Function

rename to what?
This should do it if you're talking only one file...
'**********************************************************************
'  Visual Basic ActiveX Script
'************************************************************************
 
Function Main()
 
        dim fso
        dim d
        dim m
        dim y
 
        d = day(date)
        m = month(date)
        y =  year(date)
        
        if len(d) = 1 then d = "0" & d
        if len(m) = 1 then m = "0" & m
 
        set fso = createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        strFolder = "C:\Clients\Strat\File Uploads\Customer Uploads\guard\"
        For Each File in objFSO.GetFolder(strFolder).Files
          fso.Copyfile file, strFolder & "guard.csv"
        Next                      
        Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
 
End Function

I want it renamed to guard.csv from whatever it is currently named in the guard folder.  That script gave me and error:

Error Source: Microsoft Data Transformation Services(DTS) Package

Error Description: Error Code: 0
Error Source= Microsoft VBScript runtime error
Error Description: Object required: 'objFSO'

Error on Line 20

'**********************************************************************
'  Visual Basic ActiveX Script
'************************************************************************
 
Function Main()
 
        dim fso
        dim d
        dim m
        dim y
 
        d = day(date)
        m = month(date)
        y =  year(date)
        
        if len(d) = 1 then d = "0" & d
        if len(m) = 1 then m = "0" & m
 
        set fso = createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        strFolder = "C:\Clients\Strat\File Uploads\Customer Uploads\guard\"
        For Each File in fso.GetFolder(strFolder).Files
          fso.Copyfile file, strFolder & "guard.csv"

That renames the file, but the old file is still left there

Actually, if there are any files in that folder, this could get ugly...
Assuming you'll only have one CSV..use this:
'**********************************************************************
'  Visual Basic ActiveX Script
'************************************************************************
 
Function Main()
 
        dim fso
        dim d
        dim m
        dim y
 
        d = day(date)
        m = month(date)
        y =  year(date)
        
        if len(d) = 1 then d = "0" & d
        if len(m) = 1 then m = "0" & m
 
        set fso = createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        strFolder = "C:\Clients\Strat\File Uploads\Customer Uploads\guard\"
        For Each File in fso.GetFolder(strFolder).Files
          If lcase(fso.getextensionname(file.name)) = "csv" Then fso.Copyfile file, strFolder & "guard.csv"
        Next                      
        Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
 
End Function

Oh, if you're trying to simply rename, use .MoveFile, not .CopyFile...
