Returns True if a specified file exists; False if it does not.

The FileExists method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object Required. Always the name of a FileSystemObject.
filespec Required. The name of the file whose existence is to be determined. A complete path specification (either absolute or relative) must be provided if the file isn't expected to exist in the current folder.

The following example illustrates the use of the FileExists method:

function ReportFileStatus(filespec)
  var fso, s = filespec;
  fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
  if (fso.FileExists(filespec))
    s += " exists.";
    s += " doesn't exist.";
