Hi,

Another VB.Net Novice Question for you.

I have a string 000xxxxyyyyzzz
I want to create a folder structure based on the string  - e.g c:\000xx\000xxxxyyyyzzz.tif
I know how to manipulate the string but what i don't know is how to create a folder that doesn't already exist. i.e. i want to check if the folder exists and then create if not and then if the file exists create if not etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hullo doctech,

        Dim path As String
        Dim di As System.IO.DirectoryInfo

        path = "c:\temp\doesntExist"
        di = New System.IO.DirectoryInfo(path)

        If (Not di.Exists) Then
            di.Create()
            Console.WriteLine("created folder")
        End If

        Console.WriteLine("Press ENTER to exit")
        Console.ReadLine()

that should do what you want.

Cheers

Wint.
