Hi Ed,

Your code doesn't work because you have doubled up on the ! (or run) command.
Run Run XCOPY g:\excel\cash012022.csv  G:\CASH.CSV

Is there a reason why you are using DOS commands here?
You could just use the dBASE copy file command instead.

stname = "g:\excel\cash012022.csv"
stname = "copy file "+stname+" "+"G:\CASH.CSV"
