Sharepoint doesn't actually have physical folders.  They are logical folders generated on the fly from data in the content database.

The only way to manage folders is using the Sharepoint API.  That is non-trivial and requires that the computer running any programs written to use the API can only be run on computers with Sharepoint installed.  Sharepoint 2003 and ASP do not play well together.  It can be done but it's tricky.

Hi tedbilly.
thanks for responding to my question.

OK I understand that,

I could resolve my problem on an other way by existing the sharepoint database direct
but would it be possible ( and save ) to  access the sharepoint database direct by SQL and if yes how?

thanks in advance

Basically accessing the database directly is very dangerous.  They use a very complex schema and a lot of content is stored in binary blobs.  I wouldn't recommend it.

I looked at the web services that are available (I'm assuming you have WSS 2.0 in SBS 2003) and none seem to give that capability.  http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa136717.aspx

There might be stored procedures available in the database for adding folder but it's risky because if you use them incorrectly you could destroy your Sharepoint site.

You might want to consider reading some articles on how to integrate ASP pages with Sharepoint.  That is possible and would then give you access to the Sharepoint API within the ASP pages.  Search Microsoft for integrating ASP with Sharepoint.
