The following code works fine, unless FSOURCE and FDESTINATION have spaces in them. Please can somebody advise how I can handle spaces with it?

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Return = WshShell.Run("%comspec% /C \\srhtimtss\SLogic\Files\Backup\robocopy /E /MIR /R:1 /W:1 /V /TEE /log:\\Srhtimtss\installlogs\VI_Logs\"&MyNumber&".txt "&FSOURCE&" "&FDESTINATION&"", 0, true)

"[&FSOURCE&]" "[&FDESTINATION&]"

or it could be

"&[FSOURCE]&" "&[FDESTINATION]&"

I've just worked it out.

If anybody would like to see this in future, here's the solution:


Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Return = WshShell.Run("%comspec% /C \\srhtimtss\SLogic\Files\Backup\robocopy /E /MIR /R:1 /W:1 /V /TEE /log:\\Srhtimtss\installlogs\VI_Logs\"&MyNumber&".txt """&FSOURCE&""" """&FDESTINATION&"""", 0, true)

You can also try:

"& "'" &  [FSOURCE] & "'" & " " & "'" & [FDESTINATION] &"'" &"

That is a ' surrounded by quotes.
So that it is interpreted as
' FSOURCE '

For what it's worth, here's I approach these, using a small function that saves typing and for improves readability.
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Return = WshShell.Run("%COMSPEC% /C \\srhtimtss\SLogic\Files\Backup\robocopy /E /MIR /R:1 /W:1 /V /TEE /log:\\Srhtimtss\installlogs\VI_Logs\" & MyNumber & ".txt " & Quote(FSOURCE) & " " & Quote(FDESTINATION), 0, true)

Function Quote(s)
   Quote = Chr(34) & s & Chr(34)
End Function
