VBScript » File » Move

Version: 3.0

object.Move destination
The path and filename to where the file will be moved.

This method is used to move the file relating to the specified File object to a new destination.

It is recommended that you use the FileExists method of the FileSystemObject object to determine if a file with the same name already exists in the destination location. If it does, and you attempt the Move, you'll receive an error.
