Dir Function Example
This example uses the Dir function to check if certain files and directories exist. On the Macintosh, “HD:” is the default drive name and portions of the pathname are separated by colons instead of backslashes. Also, the Microsoft Windows wildcard characters are treated as valid file-name characters on the Mac. However, you can use the MacID function to specify file groups.

Dim MyFile, MyPath, MyName
' Returns "WIN.INI" (on Microsoft Windows) if it exists.
MyFile = Dir("C:\WINDOWS\WIN.INI")    

' Returns filename with specified extension. If more than one *.ini
' file exists, the first file found is returned.
MyFile = Dir("C:\WINDOWS\*.INI")

' Call Dir again without arguments to return the next *.INI file in the
' same directory.
MyFile = Dir

' Return first *.TXT file with a set hidden attribute.
MyFile = Dir("*.TXT", vbHidden)

' Display the names in C:\ that represent directories.
MyPath = "c:\"    ' Set the path.
MyName = Dir(MyPath, vbDirectory)    ' Retrieve the first entry.
Do While MyName <> ""    ' Start the loop.
    ' Ignore the current directory and the encompassing directory.
    If MyName <> "." And MyName <> ".." Then
        ' Use bitwise comparison to make sure MyName is a directory.
        If (GetAttr(MyPath & MyName) And vbDirectory) = vbDirectory Then
            Debug.Print MyName    ' Display entry only if it
        End If    ' it represents a directory.
    End If
    MyName = Dir    ' Get next entry.
Loop




MkDir path

The required path argument is a string expression that identifies the directory or folder to be created. The path may include the drive. If no drive is specified, MkDir creates the new directory or folder on the current drive.

MkDir "MYDIR"    ' Make new directory or folder.

1.- Open the VBA editor and add a reference to Microsoft Scripting Runtime
2.- Declare a FileSystemObject object:
        Dim FSO As New FileSystemObject
3.- For I=0 To LastRowOfList
   If Not FSO.FolderExist(oSheet.Cells(I,1)) Then
       FSO.CreateFolder oSheet.Cells(I,1)
   End If
Next I
