Create and Share a Folder in VBScript

I've written two functions that will create and share a folder on a File Server. For simplicity, I'd like to be able to combine them both into a single function that will create the home folder and then share it. Here's the current code:

Function CreateFolder(strComputer, strUser)
 strDir = "\\" & strComputer & "\e$\users\"
' Create the File System Object
      Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

      If objFSO.FolderExists(strDir & strUser & "\") Then
            Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strDir & strUser & "\")
      Else
            Set objFolder = objFSO.CreateFolder(strDir & strUser & "\")
      End If
End Function      

Function ShareFolder(strComputer, UserStr)
      Const FILE_SHARE = 0
      Const MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS = 25
      Set objWMIService = GetObject _
                ("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

      Set objNewShare = objWMIService.Get("Win32_Share")

      errReturn = objNewShare.Create("E:\Users\" & UserStr, UserStr & "$", FILE_SHARE, MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS, "User Share for " & UserStr)
End Function

If I combine both, it will  not share the folder. How do I successfully combine the two?

Hi

you are using different variable name in both functions "strUser" in first and "UserStr" in second when copying the share folder code in the first function replace

errReturn = objNewShare.Create("E:\Users\" & UserStr, UserStr & "$", FILE_SHARE, MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS, "User Share for " & UserStr)

with

errReturn = objNewShare.Create("E:\Users\" & strUser, strUser& "$", FILE_SHARE, MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS, "User Share for " & strUser)

and Cheers
