 String DirName = Path.GetDirectory(targetfile);
  if(!Directory.Exists (DirName)
    {
    Directory.Create(DirName);
    }
  if(!File.Exists(targetfile))
   {

You'll have to get the full path to the file and then test the path, so

Dim strPathToFile As String = PathToExcelRepository + VarSession.Community + "/containers/"  +todayDate+ "/"
Dim di As New DirectoryInfo(strPathToFile)
If di.Exists = False
   di.Create()
End If

Then you can continue with your code

System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(@"C:\Something\SomethingElse\AnotherThing");

This creates all sub directories too (if needed)
