VBA delete all files in a Folder

I have a folder called P:\Pix
I want to delete every file in that folder

I am using the following code:

Dim dbs As Database
Dim fs, f, s, Folder

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set Folder = fs.getfolder("P:\Pix")
Folder.Delete

I get an error message "Access Denied" if the folder is not empty.  

Question:  How do I delete every file in that folder?

Help is appreciated

If you're doing this in VBA from an Office application you can set a reference to the
Microsoft Scripting Runtime
library and then utiize early binding and intellisence in your procedure.  Intellisense is a great assistant when writing code.

Dim dbs As Database
Dim fs As Scripting.FileSystemObject
Dim Folder As Scripting.Folder
Dim f As Scripting.File
Dim s

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set Folder = fs.getfolder("P:\Pix")
For Each f In Folder.Files
    f.Delete
Next
Folder.Delete
