Hi all

This is probably quite obvious but I'm a bit of a newbie as far as scripts in vbs go, but what I'm trying to do is have a user run a script to backup their IE favourites and all their shortcuts on the desktop into a folder on our server. The script works to the extent that I can create a folder and copy the relevant files into it with specific filepaths pre-input, but when the thing goes out into the wild I will require the user to input their staff number (8 digit numeric) into a dialog box and then pass this back into the script so that the relevant files for that user get copied.

I think its through the use of inputbox but I can't grasp how to get the output from that back in as a variable..doh

Any pointers in the right direction gratefully received :tazz:
