Resave a file automatically in word

Is there a way I can run a script to look in a folder that has
wordpad files, open those files in word and resave them as
word files in another directory?

Thank you

To find all the files in a location and from this you have to select only the word files

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  sFolder = Wscript.Arguments.Item(0)
  If sFolder = "" Then
      Wscript.Echo "No Folder parameter was passed"
      Wscript.Quit
  End If
  Set NewFile = fso.CreateTextFile(sFolder&"\FileList.txt", True)
  Set folder = fso.GetFolder(sFolder)
  Set files = folder.Files

To copy the files from one location to other

dim filesys

set filesys=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If filesys.FileExists("c:\sourcefolder\anyfile.txt") Then

filesys.CopyFile "c:\sourcefolder\anyfile.txt", "c:\destfolder\"

I'm sorry, I may have phrased my question wrong.  I am looking to search a directory that has txt files in it and resave those files as microsoft word files (.doc).

Try this program, I have tried a small research, it is program - please do download and try this whether it meets the requirements or you might have to wait for someone else to write a script, which would be useful, until than try this!
