DOS command in access

P: n/a
What's the easiest way for me to launch a simple DOS command "copy filename
to filename" from Access 2000? I have tried in a macro and can't figure it
out.

I'll search the archives, but if someone can fill me in. I really haven't
done much of anything in VBA before, mostly just macros till now.

Sounds great.... where do I find it. I'm not familiar with VBA yet. It
doesn't appear to be an option for a macro action.

Why use DOS? Why not just use the built in FileCopy command?
