Moving folders from one network drive to another in Word 2000 VBA

 Moving folders from one network drive to another in Word 2000 VBA

Dear All,

I am having difficulty writing a macro to move a folder full of files from
one network drive to another.  I'm using a VBA macro in Word 2000 on

I've tried using the filesystemobject.movefolder method and  the
folderobject.move method and both give the following result:

Run-time error '70' permission denied.

The code works fine to move folders between two drives on my local machine
("C:\" etc) but not on networked drives ("H:\") etc.  I know that I have the
relevant file permissions to the drives (I've checked share and fs level
permissions, and I can drag and drop the folders manually).

Ideally, I'd like to access these folders and files using UNC pathnames
rather than mapped drives, but I can't work out how to do this using the
filesystem object (whose only properties is the drives container and the
drives count!)

Is there another way of moving folders?  Could I maybe run a CommandPrompt
command to do it?

Any help greatly appreciated.
