Created step in job using vbscript, the step is supposed to copy and move a file to a directory only if the file is a certain size. When I check the job history, it says that "The step did not generate any output. The step succeeded". My problem is that when I go to check the directory the file should have been moved and copied to, the file is not there. I only want the file moved if it contains data, that's why I have the size method in there. See script below:

SET filesys=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

DIM Filesys
dDATE = DateSerial(Year(Now()), Month(Now()), Day(Now()))

valYear = CStr(Year(dDATE))
valMonth = CStr(Month(dDATE))
valDay = CStr(Day(dDATE))

If len(valMonth) = 1 Then
valMonth = "0" & valMonth
End If

If len(valDay) = 1 Then
valDay = "0" & valDay
End If

If filesys.FileExists("\\server123\folder\folder\file.xls") and filesys.size > 14336 Then
filesys.CopyFile \\server123\folder\folder\file.xls", "\\server123\folder\folder\folder1\file.xls_" & valYear & valMonth & valDay & ".xls"
End If

SET filesys = Nothing
