    You have to create an object of type "FileSystemObject", and call the
    method from that object. Did you do that? It would help if you posted
    your code, but you should have something like:

    Dim fso As Object

    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    fso.CopyFile ...

    Note, though, that if all you do is copy a single file, there's a
    built-in VBA FileCopy statement that will be more efficient for that
    purpose. The syntax is:

    FileCopy <source>, <destination>

    You'll find more about it in the online help, if you look from the VB
    Editor.

    Check to see that you have a Reference for the Microsoft Scripting Runtime.

    Open your module, click Tools, References and review the list. Add it to
    the list if it is not checked.
