dos command to copy and paste excel files by overwriting the same file names


I am in search for dos command which I need to include in the batch file. The code I am looking for is to copy excel files from a Upload folder and paste it in the archive sub folder(which sits in Upload folder). Each time I run batch file, it should copy files from Upload folder and paste in archive folder. If the files with same name exist inside archive folder, the dos command should over write only those files with latest files, leaving other files as they are.

Hope you get my point.

Any questions please let me know.

Thank you
