Are you sure the path is correct - e.g. it's definitely "NewFolder" and not "New Folder" with a space?

PS I'm assuming that parenthesis between Name and Range is a typo and isn't actually in your code, since it wouldn't compile otherwise.

Yes, it was just sloppiness on my part.  The code works fine if it is done properly.
