Will the NAME method described by Jeffrey Coachman in the below question work somehow for with a wildcard?

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MS_Access/Q_23701586.html#a22384714

This is what I'm trying
   Name stExportPath & "*.csv" As stExportArchivePath & "*.csv"

I've used debug.print to look at the two paths and they seem correct (they include the last "\")


in the past I've used something close to the following, but I can't find it and can't get it to work either.
fso.MoveFile (stExportPath & "*.csv"), stExportArchivePath

Thanks

I did something similar in the past and used to loop through the filenames and look for the file extension.

Something like this:
Dim FSO As Object
     Dim FromPath As String
     Dim ToPath As String
     Dim FileInFromFolder As Object
     
     On Error GoTo ErrHandler
     
     FromPath = "C:\Temp\"
     ToPath = "C:\Temp\test\"

     Set FSO = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")


     For Each FileInFromFolder In FSO.getfolder(FromPath).Files
        If Right(FileInFromFolder.Name, 3) = "csv" Then
            FileInFromFolder.Move ToPath
         End If
     Next FileInFromFolder

Open in new window


Hope this helps,
Daniel
