    I tried FileCopy and Name but it seems that they only allow one file to
    be moved. I want to my user to be able to plug in a camera and click a
    button that will move the files from the camera to a folder on the hard
    drive. I believe that the camera becomes the E: drive when plugged in
    so it should be just like moving files from one drive to another. Any
    help with the code?

    Why would you want to use MS Access to do this function?

    Sorry. This is a newsgroup dedicated to questions about Access, the
    database program in Office Professional. It appears your question may not
    be related to these subjects. The Microsoft help system is not all that
    clear and may have misdirected you here.

    It is best to ask your questions in a newsgroup dedicated to the
    subject of your question. You should find people better able to address
    your problem there.
    http://tc2.atspace.com/0013-HowToSearch.htm#FindNewsgroup may help.


    Note: It is always best to indicate the name and version of any
    program(s) you may be using when asking a question and also indicate the
    operating system (like Windows XP or 98) when you ask a question.

    Use the Dir Function

    Const Dest="C:\Pictures"
    Dim fil As String

    Fil = Dir("E:\*.jpg")
    While Len(Fil)
    FileCopy Fil, Dest
    Fil=Dir()
    Wend

    I believe there's a Searching Sub-Folders for files function available at
    http://www.mvps.org/Access

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
