I need to copy and rename one file multiple times.
Let's say the file name is StartFile.jpg
I would like to copy StartFile.jpg, rename it to
1000a.jpg
1000b.jpg
1000c.jpg
1000d.jpg
1000e.jpg
1001a.jpg
1001b.jpg
1000c.jpg
etc...all the way to 2000e.jpg

Any ideas on how to do something like that?

Dim fso, fil, Counter

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set fil = fso.GetFile("c:\folder\subfolder\StartFile.jpg")

For Counter = 1000 To 2000
    fil.Copy "c:\folder\subfolder\" & Counter & "a.jpg"
    fil.Copy "c:\folder\subfolder\" & Counter & "b.jpg"
    fil.Copy "c:\folder\subfolder\" & Counter & "c.jpg"
    fil.Copy "c:\folder\subfolder\" & Counter & "d.jpg"
    fil.Copy "c:\folder\subfolder\" & Counter & "e.jpg"
Next

Set fil = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing
