I need a vbs sript to copy all the files in folder A to folder B

Error control:-
*  If the destination folder (B) does not exist, do not attempt copy or show an error.
*  If the destination folder does exist, but the target files are already there, do not copy the files or show an error.

Thanks!

Hi,this should do what you are asking.

Regards,

Rob.
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strSource = "C:\Temp\Source"
strDestination = "C:\Temp\Destination"

If objFSO.FolderExists(strSource) = True Then
	If objFSO.FolderExists(strDestination) = True Then
		If Right(strDestination, 1) <> "\" Then strDestination = strDestination & "\"
		If objFSO.FileExists(strDestination & objFile.Name) = False Then objFSO.CopyFile objFile.Path, strDestination, False
	End If
End If

Hi,

It should look something like this to loop true the files.

Regards Tompa


Dim objFso
Dim strSource
Dim strDestination
Set objFso = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strSource = "C:\Temp\Source"
strDestination = "C:\Temp\Destination"

if objFso.FolderExists(strSource) = true then
	
	if objFso.FolderExists(strDestination) = true then
		set objFolder = objFso.GetFolder(strSource)
		Set objFiles = objFolder.Files
		
		for each objFile in objFiles
		
			If Right(strDestination, 1) <> "\" Then strDestination = strDestination & "\"
			If objFso.FileExists(strDestination & objFile.Name) = False Then objFSO.CopyFile objFile.Path, strDestination, False
		
		next
	end if

end if

Oh, I forgot the Files loop...oh well...

Rob.
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strSource = "C:\Temp\Source"
strDestination = "C:\Temp\Destination"

If objFSO.FolderExists(strSource) = True Then
	If objFSO.FolderExists(strDestination) = True Then
		If Right(strDestination, 1) <> "\" Then strDestination = strDestination & "\"
		For Each objFile In objFSO.GetFolder(strSource).Files
			If objFSO.FileExists(strDestination & objFile.Name) = False Then objFSO.CopyFile objFile.Path, strDestination, False
		Next
	End If
End If
