RENAME FILE USING FILESYSTEMOBJECT

Renaming a file and displaying Drive & File Information

Copy and paste the following code into a Standard Module in your Project.

Sub ShowFileAccessInfo() 
Dim fs, f, s  
On Error GoTo ShowFileAccessInfo_Err
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
Set f = fs.Getfile("C:\mytext.txt") 
s = f.Name & " on Drive " & UCase(f.Drive) & vbCrLf  
'renames the file named c:\mytext.txt as yourtext.txt  

f.Name = "yourtext.txt" 
s = s & "New Name: " & f.Name & vbCrLf 
s = s & "Created: " & f.DateCreated & vbCrLf 
s = s & "Last Accessed: " & f.DateLastAccessed & vbCrLf 
s = s & "Last Modified: " & f.DateLastModified  

MsgBox s, 0, "File Access Info"  

ShowFileAccessInfo_Exit: 
Exit Sub
  
ShowFileAccessInfo_Err: 
MsgBox Err.Description, , "ShowFileAccessInfo" 
Resume ShowFileAccessInfo_Exit  
End Sub 

Change the program lines wherever the sample text file reference: c:\mytext.txt is appearing in the code with one of your own text file pathname.
