File System Object - Classic ASP

Hi All,

I am using File System Object (FSO) to rename a file name. This is a script which I am installing on some legacy web sites. Most of the time the permissions are set correctly on the server. However, if by chance the permissions are not set to allow this then I do not want the update to happen. If there is an error I want the var BolSuccess to be set to false.

Am I doing this the right way?

Any idea?

Best regards

A.

BolSuccess = True

Set objFSO=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FilesystemObject")
On Error resume Next

objFSO.MoveFile strPathOld, strPathNew

If Err.Number <> 0 Then            
BolSuccess = False
End If

On Error GoTo 0            
Set objFSO = nothing

Syntax looks correct, also to note if permission to file is not set correctly FileSystemObject will run into error and in that case Err.Number will have value greater than 0 which will allow flag BolSuccess as false.

Also if you need to trap description of error you could use

Err.Description
Err.Source
