I want to make a copying program for vbs

I have got this far and I am stuck. I want to make a program which copies itself to another location, but when it discovers its location, it doesn't add its own filename to the variable, How do you add the file name onto the end of the variable?
My code is here:

Option Explicit
Dim wshShell
Dim oFSO
Dim sScriptDir
Dim sTargetFolder
Dim sCmd
set wshShell  = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

sScriptDir = oFSO.GetParentFolderName(WScript.ScriptFullName)
msgBox "Location," & sScriptDir
sTargetFolder = "C:\Users\Arion\Documents\Environment\Test"
 
sCmd = "%comspec% /c copy """ & sScriptDir & """ """ & sTargetFolder & """ /Y"

==================================================EDIT:

This doesn't work either, shame, It should do, I can see why though, It recognises \wippre-alpha.vbs on the end as a string.

Option Explicit
Dim wshShell
Dim oFSO
Dim sScriptDir
Dim sTargetFolder
Dim sCmd
Dim sScriptDirfn
set wshShell  = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

sScriptDir = oFSO.GetParentFolderName(WScript.ScriptFullName)
sScriptDirfn = sScriptDir & "\wippre-alpha.vbs"
msgBox "Location," & sScriptDirfn
sTargetFolder = "C:\Users\Arion\Documents\Environment\Test"
 
sCmd = "%comspec% /c copy """ & sScriptDirfn & """ """ & sTargetFolder & """ /Y"

This seemed to work for me, and copied the VBS file to the target folder.

Option Explicit

Dim objShell, strCmd, strTargetFolder

strTargetFolder = "B:\ee\EE28978298\dest"

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

strCmd = "%comspec% /c copy """ & WScript.ScriptFullName & """ """ & strTargetFolder & """ /Y"
objShell.Run strCmd
