copying files

Recommended Posts

I am trying to copy a number files from a folder that is on a network shared drive and paste them on a user’s desktop.

Everyone's desktop file location is different.

C:\Documents and Settings\userid\Desktop

Where the userid is different for everyone

I have tried this:

FileCopy, \\sdolco2\UI - EAAS\Excel Rating Worksheets\*.*, Current Users desktop path:,%USERPROFILE%\\Desktop, 1

Appears nothing happens when I try to run that.

I did get the below to work.

BUT it is possible for the user to have some of these files on their desktop already so it will ask them if they want to replace the existing files? How would I make it so they have to replace them?

Send, {LWIN}r

;clear run window

Send, {DEL}

SetWinDelay, 10

Send, {\\ 2}sdolco2\\ui{SPACE}-{SPACE}e{a 2}s\\Excel{SPACE}Rating{SPACE}Worksheets

Send, {ENTER}

SetKeyDelay, 5000

; wait fof folder window


SetKeyDelay, 10


SetKeyDelay, 10

Send, f



Thank you in advance for any help.
