    Resolved [RESOLVED] Search for a file

    Full of questions today (mostly because its the weekend and I'm playing around in vb 2008...anyway...more to the point )

    What i want is a small system that will do a quick search for a specific file location. What this is going to be used for is to search for a file and copy that file to the program folder (I already have a way to copy it).

    Not much info to give...thats all I can think of...

    Thanks in advance

    Use the GetFiles method. I think it was part of IO.Directory, but you can always access it through My.Computer.FileSystem. Use the wildcard parameter to set the search query.
    Please rate helpful ppl's posts. It's the best 'thank you' you can give
