Use Windows Script Host to Rename Existing Files

You can rename files through the use of the FileSystem object. The problem is that you would expect to find it in the document under a name like Rename. Actually, the functionality is supplied via the “MoveFile” method. The only technical difference between a file move and a rename is that a move usually indicates the ability to change the location of the file in addition to the name.

This code effectively renames the file “test.txt” to “temp.txt”:

 Dim fsoSet fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")fso.MoveFile "test.txt", "temp.txt"
