How to XCOPY files using VBA

How to copy set of files from one folder to another using VBA / How to run DOS Commands in VBA

After a long hibernation I am posting in this blog, thanks to Yaswi.

There is nothing like using the command prompt. This gives a good satisfaction for any programmer / administrator as s/he moves around the files, typing the commands etc

Here is a simple code that moves all the files from one folder to another using XCOPY. You can use all the options of XCOPY with VBA

Sub Copy_Bunch_Of_Files()

Shell "cmd /c xcopy /y c:\temp\*.* C:\Temp\Backup"

End Sub
