fileflag

The parameter "fileflag" is the name assigned to the Boolean value returned by the method using the FileSystemObjectName.FileExists Method.

FileSystemObjectName

The parameter "FileSystemObjectName" is used to specify the name of the instance of the FileSystemObject Object related to.

filespec
