Hello,
This is in reference to this previous question:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Q_28050669.html 
Let’s say the Main folder path is C:\Main\FolD
This folders has several files that will be distributed between the newly created folders. The code does that. What is needed now – if the main folder name is “Array”, then create 3 or whatever number of folders that start with the main folder name like
FoldD_part1
FoldD _part2
FoldD _part3 etc

Right now the code creates the new folders with name as part 1 part 2, part 3 etc .

There seems to be a contradiction in your question regarding the exact folder names (mainly what is “Array”?), but hopefully I understood correctly; I added the name of the folder being processed on lines 12 and 20 (and in the call on line 3):
Option Explicit

Call Folderrize("C:\main\FolD", 3)

Sub Folderrize(strFolder, intParts)
	Dim objFSO, objFolder, intNumFiles, intNumFilesPerPart, intCounterFolder, intCounterFile, intCounterFileThisPart, objFile
	Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
	Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strFolder)
	intNumFiles = objFolder.Files.Count
	intNumFilesPerPart = 1 + Int((intNumFiles - 1) / intParts)
	For intCounterFolder = 1 To intParts
		If Not objFSO.FolderExists(strFolder & "\Part" & intCounterFolder) Then objFSO.CreateFolder(strFolder & "\" & objFolder.Name & "_part" & intCounterFolder)
	Next
	intCounterFolder = 1
	intCounterFileThisPart = 0
	intCounterFile = 0
	For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
		intCounterFileThisPart = intCounterFileThisPart + 1
		intCounterFile = intCounterFile + 1
		objFile.Move strFolder & "\" & objFolder.Name & "_part" & intCounterFolder & "\"
		If intCounterFile < intNumFiles And intCounterFileThisPart >= intNumFilesPerPart Then
			intNumFilesPerPart = 1 + Int((intNumFiles - 1 - intCounterFile) / (intParts - intCounterFolder))
			intCounterFolder = intCounterFolder + 1
			intCounterFileThisPart = 0
		End If
	Next
	Set objFolder = Nothing
	Set objFSO = Nothing
End Sub
