Copy certain files from folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I have this vb script from an old post, it copies files specified in a filelist:

    Option Explicit


    ' The source path for the copy operation.

    Const strSourceFolder = "H:"


    ' The target path for the copy operation.

    Const strTargetFolder = "C:\Temp\Target\"

    ' The list of files to copy. Should be a text file with one file on each row. No paths - just file name.

    Const strFileList = "C:\filelist.txt"


    ' Should files be overwriten if they already exist? TRUE or FALSE.

    Const blnOverwrite = FALSE

    Dim objFSO

    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")


    Const ForReading = 1

    Dim objFileList

    Set objFileList = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strFileList, ForReading, False)


    Dim strFileToCopy, strSourceFilePath, strTargetFilePath

    On Error Resume Next

    Do Until objFileList.AtEndOfStream

        ' Read next line from file list and build filepaths

        strFileToCopy = objFileList.Readline

        strSourceFilePath = objFSO.BuildPath(strSourceFolder, strFileToCopy)

        strTargetFilePath = objFSO.BuildPath(strTargetFolder, strFileToCopy)

        ' Copy file to specified target folder.


        objFSO.CopyFile strSourceFilePath, strTargetFilePath, blnOverwrite

        If Err.Number = 0 Then         ' File copied successfully

        Else         ' Error copying file

            Wscript.Echo "Error " & Err.Number & " (" & Err.Description & "). Copying " & strFileToCopy

        End If



    Could anyone modify this script so I can use the filename in the filelist without extension?

    e.g. Name in sourcefolder: file1.txt

    Name in the file list: file1
