The project is written in Visual Basic 2008.  I have code that writes a text file to c:\TempStorage
What code would be needed to verify the c:\TempStorage directory exists, and if it does not exist, what code would be needed to create the folder c:\tempStorage?

But for the QPR code to work, don't forget to add:

Imports System.IO

Hope that helps.

True but if they already have code writing to a file then it's a safe assumption they are already importing system.io

I was actually using:
myXML.Save("c:\EPDEHRS\XML\PQRI_" & txtNumber.Text & ".xml")
so
the data of adding "Imports System.IO" was also of value
