do not delete if error

The code below copies a file and renames it in a new folder. Right now the old file is deleted right away but I only want to delete it if the copy suceeded.

Private Sub btnAttributeAll_Click()

Dim SourceFile, DestinationFile
SourceFile = "G:\Scans\Scan - 262i\test.jpg"    ' Define source file name.
DestinationFile = "G:\Scans\test moved\testmoved.jpg"    ' Define target file name.
FileCopy SourceFile, DestinationFile    ' Copy source to target.

Kill SourceFile
MsgBox "moved file " & SourceFile

End Sub

Open in new window

How would I do this?
