i'm using the filesystemobject and trying to copy files, but i'm getting a permission denied error. here's the part of my script with the code: <BR><BR>Dim f2 <BR>Dim fso <BR>set fso = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") <BR>Set f2 = fso.GetFile(tcatdir) <BR>f2.Copy(tcatdircopy) <BR>Set f2 = nothing <BR><BR>Set fso = nothing <BR><BR><BR>tcatdir being the directory to the file that needs to be copied and tcatdircopy being the path where to copy it too. <BR><BR>here's the error: <BR>Error Type: <BR>Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A0046) <BR>Permission denied <BR><BR>I gave the iuser_machinename read permissions on this directory and even tested write permisions, but no luck. someone suggested i give this user permissions on the top folder and work my way down, but still i'm getting an error message... any more thoughts? thanks!
