How to copy a file from one folder to another

Ah......I see the issue now.

The macro utilizes the "run command" tool. I thought this tool came with the basic designer license, but perhaps not. Or, you may have to enable it. Can't remember and I'm not at a computer. But that's why the macro isn't available. It doesn't recognize the run command tool that's in the macro.

I have the Run Command.


Output is a text file?


command is xcopy


command arguments is first where the files are coming from and the second part is where the files are going, is that correct?


Thanks for your help

Well I'm at a loss then.  If you have the run command tool I don't know why Designer doesn't recognize the tools within the macro.

At any rate, if you go back up several posts, I have a screen shot of the inside of the macro, complete with comments next to the run command tool.  That should get you right on your way.
