Question for RanjeetRain?

STPD question, but the code doesn't seem to work, maybe I missed something to create
   C:\WORK\ABC
Sub CreateDir(Byval DirName As String)
     Dim Parent As String
     Dim ParentExists As Variant
     
     On Error Resume Next
     Parent = Strleftback(Dirname, "\")
     ParentExists = Dir(Parent)
     
     If ParentExists = "" Then
          If Len(Parent) > 2 Then
               Msgbox "Call " + Parent
               Call CreateDir (Parent)
          End If
     End If
     Mkdir Dirname
End Sub

Oh oh. The same mistake again. YOu couldn't understand the context. You do not have to modify the call to CreateDir at all places. Only at one place. In your sub declaration you do not have to hard-code the path. DO NOT modify the sub declaration. Copy paste this one.


Sub CreateDir(Byval DirName As String)
    Dim Parent As String
    Dim ParentExists As Variant
   
     On Error Resume Next
    Parent = Strleftback(Dirname, "\")
    ParentExists = Dir(Parent)
   
     If ParentExists = "" Then
          If Len(Parent) > 2 Then
              Msgbox "Call " + Parent
              CreateDir Parent
         End If
    End If
    Mkdir Dirname
End Sub



Call CreateDir ("C:\WORK\RFCECN")  


NOTICE that I have only modified the main call to the sub... and not the Sub definition itself :)

Just noticed, there is no error checking!

Change to


Sub CreateDir(Byval DirName As String)
     Dim Parent As String
     Dim ParentExists As Variant
     
     On Error Resume Next
     Parent = Strleftback(Dirname, "\")
     ParentExists = Dir(Parent)
     
     If ParentExists = "" Then
          If Len(Parent) > 2 Then
               Msgbox "Call " + Parent
               Call CreateDir (Parent)
          End If
     Else
          Msgbox "Not necessary to create " & parent & " - just create final"
     End If
if err <> 0 then
    msgbox "prelude error " & error,,err
    err = 0
else
     Mkdir Dirname
if err <> 0 then
    msgbox "mkdir error " & error,,err
    err = 0
end if
   
End Sub

Cyle,

THat is a 'TESTED OK' sub. The thing is - U also have to call it. Did you call it :)


After having typed that function.. you also have to call that SUB with an argument. Did you do that? I think you didn't :)

Call CreateDir ("C:\WORK\ABC")

Mission completed.

Qwaletee,

That is some non-value-add code you added. Doesn't really help a lot. Besides, I feel your code won't even compile.

This is what I have. I had it working the first time but when I tested it (deleted the first one and tried creating it again, nothing happens)
Dim Parent As String
Dim ParentExists As Variant

On Error Resume Next
Parent = Strleftback("C:\WORK\ABC", "\")
ParentExists = Dir(Parent)

If ParentExists = "" Then
   If Len(Parent) > 2 Then
'   Msgbox "Call " + Parent
   Call CreateDir ("C:\WORK\ABC")
  End If
End If
MKdir Dirname

NO, NO, NO! That will cause an INFINITE LOOP. Do this!

1. Put the sub in in a Script Library
2. Use the Script Library in your form/agent
3. Call it like
       Call CreateDir ("C:\WORK\ABC")
    from wherever you want to create the directory.

If anything is not clear, pls let me know.

I do have Sub CreateDir.....

Call createdir(doc)  --- This is how I call it.

RanjeetRainCommented:
NO! Call it like

Call CreateDir ("C:\WORK\ABC")

If you have to pick the value dynamically from the document, you may call it like:

Call CreateDir (doc.path(0))

"Variant does not exist."

RanjeetRainCommented:
Yes, if your form doesn't have a field called PATH. See, do you want a dynamic path? Only then you have to take it from the document. Otherwise simply use the first version:

Call CreateDir ("C:\WORK\ABC")

Thats sufficient.

Sorry Ranjeet, here it is again.
Sub CreateDir(Byval DirName As String)
  Dim Parent As String
  Dim ParentExists As Variant
  On Error Resume Next
  Parent = Strleftback("C:\WORK\RFCECN", "\")
  ParentExists = Dir(Parent)
  If ParentExists = "" Then
     If Len(Parent) > 2 Then
       Call CreateDir ("C:\WORK\RFCECN")
     End If
  End If
Mkdir Dirname
End Sub

Call CreateDir ("C:\WORK\RFCECN")  Calling it as this.

wordobj.filesaveas "C:\WORK\RFCECN\" & RFC & ".doc"  , , , , , ,True, , , , , True     Saving it as this.

I get the error in saving, it would asks me to check the filepath. I also checked my C: and no C:\WORK is even created.
