10. The Language Reference > File System Object Model

Name

File System Object Model

Library to Reference

Microsoft Scripting Runtime (SCRRUN.DLL )

Description

The FileSystemObject is a boon for all developers using any variety of Visual Basic (VBScript, VBA, and VB). It simplifies the task of dealing with any type of file input and output and for dealing with the system file structure itself. Rather than resorting to complex calls to the Win32 API (or, in the case of VBScript, not being able to access the filesystem altogether), this object allows the developer to easily handle files and navigate the underlying directory structures. This is especially useful for those developers or administrators who are creating scripts that are used for system administration or maintenance.
