system call

P: n/a
Gday Guys,

Just wonderig if anyone can tell me if you can make system calls directly
from vba code?

ie file copy/move/remove etc...

It looks like I could create a batch file that does what I want, then
execute this batch file using the 'shell' command, but it would be nice if I
could do what I wanted directly.

Thanks for any assistance.

Regards,

Peter
