Hi experts,

I am getting the error msg "Path not found, Code: 800A004C" while running the attached VB script

Dim arrFileLines()
i = 0
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("D:\ScannerTesting\Watch Directory\scanned no\scanner.txt", 1)
Do Until objFile.AtEndOfStream
     Redim Preserve arrFileLines(i)
     arrFileLines(i) = objFile.ReadLine
     i = i + 1
For l = Ubound(arrFileLines) to LBound(arrFileLines) Step -1

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
objFSO.CopyFile "D:\ScannerTesting\Watch Directory\Images\*.jpg","L:\" &arrFileLines(l) & ".jpg",False

Msgbox arrFileLines(l)

What I am trying to do over here is copy the image (there is only one image file) from the directory "D:\ScannerTesting\Watch Directory\Images\" and paste it some where else and change the name of the file. The name of the image file in "D:\ScannerTesting\Watch Directory\Images\" is constantly changing, that is why, I am using the wildcard feature

The sript works fine if I hard code the name of the image file to be copied..however it gives me error mentioned above when I am using a wildcard.

Can you please tell me where I am getting it wrong as I got the syntax to use the wilcard from microsoft msdn site

Thanks in advance
