Hi,
why did you create FSO two times?

Shouldnt it be more like
Set fso = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
If fso.FolderExists("D:\TAF\9.4_AA") = False Then
	Set objFolder = fso.CreateFolder("D:\TAF\9.4.2_AA")
	fso.copyfolder "D:\TAF\9.4","D:\HSCTAF\9.4_AA\" 
End If

Open in new window

And are you sure that the destination folder is
D:\HSCTAF\9.4_AA\
?

I think you need to just do this:
Dim fso
Set fso = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
On Error Resume Next
fso.GetFolder("c:\users\home\documents\temp\doc1").Copy "c:\users\home\documents\temp\doc2", False
On Error GoTo 0

Open in new window

because fso.copyfolder seems to be unable to rename the folders it copies.

Edit: I changed the code to fulfil the correct requirements now. This method will automatically create the folder if it does not exist, and will not override an existing folder, even if the contents are different.
