Default Word VBA file updating

I'm using MS Word 2003:

I have files saved in a folder numbered structure:



I will receive new versions of these files but in a different folder structure, usually all in one folder but they can also arrive in various folder structures within the "NEWFILES" folder.


I'm looking for a routine that would search each file in the "NEWFILES" folder and it's subfolders, and using it's file name, find it's location in the "OLDFILES" folder and subfolders and copy/overwrite the old file with the new file.

Basically, I receive new versions of these files but with a different folder structure so I need to update the old files with the new ones without having to find each one and manually copy and overwrite each file by hand.

The new files will always have the same file name as the old files just different folder structure.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
