"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi yws812,
Try this function, which returns True if the directory exists, false if not:

Function FolderExists(fname) As Boolean
'   Returns TRUE if the folder exists
Dim x As String, ffname As String
ffname = fname
If Right(fname, 1) <> "\" Then ffname = fname & "\"
x = Dir(ffname)
If x <> "" Then FolderExists = True _
    Else FolderExists = False
End Function

Cheers!
