VBS Script Fails to run

Windows 2003 R2 Standard Member Server SP2
Excel 2010 SP1

a expert on here helped me with this script
from a command prompt  

c:\cscript c:\util\csvmerge.vbs

this error happens

csvmerge.vbs(23,17) Microsoft Excel Cannot rename a sheet to the same name as another sheet a referenced object library or a workbook referenced by visual basic

This same script ran great on my Windows 7 Pro computer where it was developed.

This Server runs a Inventory program that runs a script that generates 20 .cvs2 files

This script is suppose to place all the csv2 files into one spreadsheet and each on an individual sheet.

One Note I am having another issue installing Office SP2 on this server tring to fix that now
Dont know if this may be the issue.

    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set CurrentFolder = fso.GetFolder("D:\inventory")
    Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    ProcessFolder CurrentFolder

Sub ProcessFolder(ByVal Folder)
   Dim Files
   Set Files = Folder.Files
   Dim File

                Set ToWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open(File)
                boolFirst = true
                Set FromWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open(File)
                FromWorkbook.Sheets(1).Copy ToWorkbook.Sheets(1)

are you trying to run this as a scheduled task ?
if so, make sure you load a user profile..

make the changes RobS suggests and logon to the server as that user to check. I found Excel didnt always play nice. Ended up using the ADO linkages to make changes to a workbook.



I have about 20 - 30 files to add to this spreadsheet.
I did run into an error but figured it out.
The file names are very long and excel sheets are restricted to 31 characters.
I have to reduce the file name down to less than 31 characters.
Need a script to do that .
Working on that now.

You could rename the sheet before you copy it....
                For Each objSheet In FromWorkbook.Sheets
                	objSheet.Name = Left(objSheet.Name, 30)
                For Each objSheet In ToWorkbook.Sheets
                	If LCase(objSheet.Name) = LCase(FromWorkbook.Sheets(1).Name) Then objSheet.Name = Left(objSheet.Name, 20) & " (renamed)"
                FromWorkbook.Sheets(1).Copy ToWorkbook.Sheets(1)
