I have this which works fine.  However it needs changed to this logic:  Copy every from source to target that ends with 'oracle_data_mdse.txt' as there will be many that are prefixed with the year.  Don't want to specify each one out.

objFSO.CopyFile "D:\Data\oracle_data_mdse.txt","D:\Output\oracle_data_mdse.txt"

Just put an astrix * in the text that you want it to end with
 
objFSO.CopyFile "D:\Data\*oracle_data_mdse.txt","D:\Output\oracle_data_mdse.txt"

I was thinking that but wasn't sure.  How does it ensure the target file is same name as original though?

Just copy it to the folder D:\Output\ and it will keep the same file name.
