Hey,

I have a form that have two text boxes as Source and Target. The Source take the source path and the destination textbox xopy the file to the destination path. Copying file is working well, i want that when the user copy the file from Source to destination in file dialog picker it also take the file name when the destination is open from source with it's extension. Is there a way to achieve this?

Private Sub txtSource_Click()
 Dim Dialog      As FileDialog
    
    Dim Selected    As Long
    
    Set Dialog = FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
    With Dialog
        .AllowMultiSelect = False
        .InitialFileName = Nz(Me!txtSource.Value)
        .Title = "Select file to copy"
        Selected = .Show
        If Selected <> 0 Then
            Me!txtSource.Value = .SelectedItems.Item(1)
        End If
    End With
    
    Cancel = True
End Sub

Private Sub txtTarget_Click()
Dim Dialog      As FileDialog
    
    Dim Selected    As Long
    Set Dialog = FileDialog(msoFileDialogSaveAs)
    With Dialog
        .AllowMultiSelect = False
        .InitialFileName = Nz(Me!txtTarget.Value)
        .Title = "Name saved file"
         
        Selected = .Show
        If Selected <> 0 Then
         Me!txtTarget.Value = .SelectedItems.Item(1)
         TargetFile = .SelectedItems.Item(1)
            If Not IsNull(Me!txtSource.Value) Then
                 FileCopy Me!txtSource.Value, Me!txtTarget.Value
                 Me.txtTarget = Split(TargetFile, ":")(1)
            End If
           ' Application.FollowHyperlink Me.txtTarget
            
        End If
    End With
    
    Cancel = True
   
End Sub

Also as shown in first image to copy file the file name is test, i want that when the other target location open there file name test should come automatically with extension also.

Thank you.
