Re: redirect input from file in vbs

Const ForReading = 1
Const ForWriting = 2
i = 1

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\today.log", ForReading)

Do Until objFile.AtEndOfStream
strLine = objFile.ReadLine
objFSO.CopyFile strLine , "C:\copied_files\", OverwriteExisting
Loop

This will copy ur all files listed in the log to c:\copied_files folder if i understand ur problem correct?

Thanks,
Ajay
