Hi,
In my VB6 application I'm generating a folder and some files within the folder in the following directory:
C:\temp\BI_2009040216002345_0001.
Now I wanted to move that BI_2009040216002345_0001 to C:\DestinationDirectory.
Once I done that delete the BI_2009040216002345_0001folder and all its contents. All this will be happening on two different machine but in the same network.
How do i achieve this in VB6?

Thanks in advance!

You can move Folders with the Name Statement.

This will do it on one system.

Name "C:\temp\BI_2009040216002345_0001" as "C:\BI_2009040216002345_0001\BI_2009040216002345_0001"

You will have to use the folder Share name or Mapped drive letters for a folder that is not on the current system.

Name "C:\temp\BI_2009040216002345_0001" as "\\MyShare\BI_2009040216002345_0001\BI_2009040216002345_0001"

 or

Name "C:\temp\BI_2009040216002345_0001" as "K:\BI_2009040216002345_0001\BI_2009040216002345_0001"
Name "C:\temp\BI_2009040216002345_0001" as "C:\BI_2009040216002345_0001\BI_2009040216002345_0001"
