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

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

Error on Line 20

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...
