Good morning all

I am looking for a script that allows me to copy the contents of one folder to a folder in multiple user areas

for example i have the following folders

c:\users\user1\templates
c:\users\user2\templates
c:\users\user3\templates

and I would like to copy the contents of c:\templates to these locations.  Folder names (user1, user2) in c:\users change on a daily basis .

Many thanks

Hi, see if this works.

Regards,

Rob.
strSource = "C:\Templates"

If Right(strSource, 1) <> "\" Then strSource = strSource & "\"
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
For Each objFolder In objFSO.GetFolder("C:\Users").SubFolders
	strTemplates = objFolder.Path & "\Templates\"
	If objFSO.FolderExists(strTemplates) = False Then objFSO.CreateFolder(strTemplates)
	objFSO.CopyFile strSource, strTemplates, True
Next

Oops, try this.

Rob.
strSource = "C:\Templates"

If Right(strSource, 1) <> "\" Then strSource = strSource & "\"
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
For Each objFolder In objFSO.GetFolder("C:\Users").SubFolders
	strTemplates = objFolder.Path & "\Templates\"
	If objFSO.FolderExists(strTemplates) = False Then objFSO.CreateFolder(strTemplates)
	objFSO.CopyFile strSource & "*", strTemplates, True
Next
