Simpler idea. First, check if the source file exists. Then, if it does, just copy the file from the source to the destination, overwriting the destination if the same filename exists. That way, you don't have to care if the destination exists, just to delete the thing anyway.

Now, on to your actual problem. Since MoveFile and DeleteFile do NOT return any kind of value, I think your actually checking the FSO object instance being Nothing, which will return False, and hence, log an error message.

To prevent weird problems like this, I usually don't call methods on objects inside conditional expressions. I usually assign return values to vairables and use those variables in the expressions instead. This allows for additional checking of return values, such as valid objects and values within expected ranges.
