SYMPTOMS

Programs or scripts that use the CopyHere method of the Shell.Application object might not copy items that are specified by using a wildcard character. For example, if you use a script that uses the CopyHere method to copy a subset of files in a directory, and those files are specified by using a wildcard character in the file name, the files that match the wildcard character criteria might not be copied.
