I'm setting up a small bit of VBA Code to map a network drive if the path isn't available and i've got that to work but the mapping is showing up as
blank on 'UNC PATH'

rather then the usual
folder on 'UNC PATH'

is there anyway to fix that here is an example of the code

    Set wshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
    Set colNetDrives = wshNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives
   
    For X = 71 To 90 'Letters G through Z
        DrvFound = False
   
        For Y = 1 To colNetDrives.Count - 1
            If colNetDrives.Item(Y) = Chr(X) & ":" Then
                DrvFound = True
            End If
        Next Y
       
        If Not DrvFound Then
            strDriveLtr = Chr(X) & ":"
            Exit For
        End If
    Next X
   
    wshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveLtr, sDRIVEMAPPING, True

End Sub

Run a ipconfig /all in command prompt and post back the results.

Not entirely sure what you are asking, but I don't see anything in your code that actually tells the system where to map the drive to. You can do that with the following code:

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "K:", "\\SERVERNAME\FOLDER"
                                               ^                           ^
                                          Drive Letter           Folder Location

Ok could better explain what i'm asking,

say i have the following UNC pathname

\\SERVER\FOLDER1\FOLDER2\FOLDER3\

When mapped manually through the 'Map Network Drive..' feature in windows XP it becomes

FOLDER3 on '\\SERVER\FOLDER1\FOLDER2'

when i use the code

wshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveLtr, sDRIVEMAPPING, True

strDriveLtr = the drive letter i'm assigning the map to
sDRIVEMAPPING = the UNC pathname

it comes up

 on \\SERVER\FOLDER1\FOLDER2\FOLDER3\

instead

The UNC path should be \\SERVER\FOLDER1\FOLDER2\FOLDER3 instead of \\SERVER\FOLDER1\FOLDER2\FOLDER3\

You add an additional "\" after the UNC path.
