http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_28162861.html

How do i do this in VBA - so that first the code checks for the folder that exists. Then is continues the code that is after this checking.

hi Rayne,

I can't tell from the previous (linked) question which suggestion of Aikimark's you are using to refresh your drives.

I'm not sure if I fully understand this question so this comment may or may not provide an answer for you.

To check that a file or folder exists I normally use the below function. I can't remember if it works for files stored on SharePoint.

Public Function DoesFileFolderExist(strfullpath As String) As Boolean
'25/10/2010, RB: sourced from www.excelguru.ca/node/30 by Ken Puls
'note it only checks for the existence of the lowest folder (or the file) in the strfullpath string.
    On Error GoTo EarlyExit
    If Not Dir(strfullpath, vbDirectory) = vbNullString Then DoesFileFolderExist = True
EarlyExit:
    On Error GoTo 0
End Function

Open in new window

This can be implemented using something like:

if DoesFileFolderExist("change as required to the Folder name") then
'code if folder exists...
else
'folder doesn't exist therefore...
msgbox "Folder doesn't exist"
end if

Open in new window
