Not sure i understand what you need, but if you just need to copy the file it's;

File.Copy(SourceFileName, DestinationFileName)


File.Copy("c:\test\test.txt", "c:\test1\test.txt")

Or if you want to overwrite:

File.Copy("c:\test\test.txt", "c:\test1\test.txt", True)

You can use file copy command but if you want to make some changes to the path then you need to use FSO.

The simplest method is probably to use a loop and the Mid() function to check each character starting at the end of the string, until you hit a backslash. That's the end of your path, and the character after is the start of your filename.
