Do you need to be inside an MS Office application to run a VBS file? (Visual Basic Script)?

Also can I get a few learning sites for VB script?  I know very little about it.

No. The programming language within Microsoft Office files is Visual Basic for Applications aka VBA. VBS aka Visual Basic Script is a similar subset of Visual Basic, but it is stand-alone.

Starting the VB Script for your first code from tutorial from MS site at
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/scriptcenter/dd940112.aspx

After that, you have test.vbs, you can run it at command-lin with "cscript test.vbs" or
open Window Explorer and search or locate the and click  test.vps file
