Move rather than copy

Okay, last question: how can I move a file (locally) rather than copy it?

You'll need to use the Lists Web Service again.  It's a two step process: first a copy, then a delete.  If you're talking about a document in a Document Library, then look at the Copy Web Service.

Yeah I think its a document library. It's a file, not an item in a list. It required CopyIntoItemsLocal and UpdateListItems. Took me ages to get working because microsoft are really inconsisent with their terminology!

I have several examples now if you'd like them.

Glad you solved it.  Examples would be great, as it might same others the trouble you went through.  I can post them to the documentation.
