How to modify VB Script to check file existence?

Hi,

can you help me to adjust my VB script? I need to search the script that exists in the %TEMP% file test.log, and if so, read the contents (this is always one digit), and added that the current file name in parentheses.
Finally, the script must delete the text file test.log.
In the event that no file test.log in the temp directory is not, the script work as now.

Thanks in advance for your great help.

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strDesktop = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERPROFILE%") & "\Desktop"
strUserName = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERNAME%")
strDestination = "\\S1\tests\2011 A\"
arrExtensions = Array(".pp", "doc", "xls")

If Right(strDesktop, 1) <> "\" Then strDesktop = strDesktop & "\"
If Right(strDestination, 1) <> "\" Then strDestination = strDestination & "\"
For Each objFile In objFSO.GetFolder(strDesktop).Files
	boolCopy = False
	For Each strExt In arrExtensions
		If LCase(Left(Mid(objFile.Name, InStrRev(objFile.Name, ".")), Len(strExt))) = LCase(strExt) Then boolCopy = True
	Next
	If boolCopy = True Then
      strNewName = strUserName & "_" & objFile.Name
      If objFSO.FileExists(strDestination & strNewName) = True Then objFSO.DeleteFile strDestination & strNewName, True
      objFSO.CopyFile objFile.Path, strDesktop & strNewName, True
      objFSO.MoveFile objFile.Path, strDestination & strNewName
   End If
Next

Still not clear with the requirements,

What is location of temp file?
What do you mean by add that the current file name in parentheses?

It would be good if you can give an example

Okay, I'll try to explain it further:

In the System folder "%Temp%" I have a text file test.log.
At this moment, my script works by renaming an existing file on your desktop user name (system variable "%USERNAME%") and I need to make the newly renamed file added more digits of the test.log file (if file exists).
The result might look like this:
The script renames the file on your desktop: Thomas.Meyer(2). pptx

Hi,
I wrote a script error in that line (see below) and error: Object required: 'objFile'

strNewName = strUserName & "_" & Replace(objFile.Name,".","("&TempNum&").")
