You should take a look at instantiating a Scripting.FileSystemObject. It has built-in methods to check for folder and file existence, and to open text files. Here's a sample of how to check for the presence of a folder:

function doesFolderExist(folderName)

Dim fso
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
doesFolderExist = fso.FolderExists(folderName)

end function

You can also leverage the OpenTextFile method to read the TXT file. Reading .XLS files is a much more difficult task I'm not sure you really want to undertake in a VBScript file.

That should be enough to give you a push in the right direction. If you need further help, just post again and we'll go from there!

Good luck!
