Hello,

Need a robust vba code that does this.

There is a network folder called gdfgf/fdsfsdf which has a particular csv file.
1.      Create a folder (if it doesn’t exist in C drive by the name: C:\newTemp
2.      Copy the target csv from the network folder and dump it in the newly created folder (C:\newTemp)
3.      Do some stuff with the csv (code not needed for this step)
4.      Delete the folder that has the csv

Thank you

Assuming your user acct has the right permissions...


Dim fso, fil, fld

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

On Error Resume Next

Set fil = fso.GetFile("\\servername\share\folder\subfolder\blah.csv")
' Set fil = fso.GetFile("\\servername\c$\folder\subfolder\blah.csv")

If Err <> 0 Then
    MsgBox "blah.csv does not exist"
Else
    Set fld = fso.GetFolder("c:\newTemp")
    If Err <> 0 Then fso.CreateFolder("c:\newTemp")
    fil.Copy "c:\newTemp\blah.csv", True
    ' do stuff to file
    fld.Delete True
End If

Set fil = Nothing
Set fld = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing

On Error GoTo 0
