Hi C8X,

In Visual Basic you can create a directory using the MKDIR command.

The sntax of the command is
     MKDIR path

Where path is the full path of the directory you wish to create.

To create the directory Indiglo on the C drive you could the following command
    MKDIR "E:\Indiglo"

Alternately, you could store the directory path in a variable such as
     MKDIR dir_to_make

You can also pull the directory name to create from a text box.  Assume you have a text box called txtDirToMake.  The command

     MKDIR txtDireToMake.Text

would create the directory specified in the text box.

you can use the Win API CreateDirectory() (i think the name is correct)
