Description

Copies a file to a given path.

Use Copy to make a copy of a file. The first form of Copy only accepts a source and destination paths. If the destination path points to an already existing file, Copy raises an exception. The second form of Copy accepts an optional Overwrite parameter. If set to true, the parameter forces the copy operation to continue even if the destination file already exists. The following table lists the parameters expected by this method.



Name Meaning

SourceFileName

The path to the file that is copied.

DestFileName

The destination path to which the file is copied.

Overwrite

Specifies whether the copy operation should proceed even if another one is at the DestFileName path.



Note: Copy raises an exception if the source file does not exist, the paths are invalid, or the user does not have enough privileges to perform the copy operation.
