    Default FSO methods on network drives fail

    I have a shared drive on Computer A and it is mapped as Drive "K" on the server running IIS. The share has full access to everyone.<BR>But the FSO methods like FolderExists, FileExists, CopyFile etc. Fail. The DriveExists("K") returns True. All these methods work if I reference local C or E drives. Are these functions not availble for Network drives or am I missing something?<BR>Thanks,<BR>Srini

    This is an issue with FSO and security. There is a sloppy workaround for this, discussed at:<BR><BR>Using FSO to Access a File on a Remote Computer<BR>http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/faq/FileSystemObject/faq6.shtml<BR><BR>For the complete FSO list of FAQs, see:<BR>http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/faq/faqtoc.shtml#FileSystemObject<BR><BR>Happy Programming!
