Hi,

I have an Excel 2010 VBA application in which I create a new empty folder ("\Training") on my C: drive. This works successfully.

However, I want to also create 2 empty subfolders within the \Training folder but I'm not sure how to do this.

Further, how do I check MKDIR to ensure it has successfully created the folders ?

This is my code thus far ...

   Dim MyPath As String
       
   MyPath = Environ("USERPROFILE") & "\Training"

   If Len(Dir(MyPath, vbDirectory)) = 0 Then
      MkDir MyPath
      ' Create a '\Booking' folder  and a '\Finance' folder inside the '\Training' folder
      MsgBox "A new Windows folder with subfolders has been created successfully", vbInformation
   End If


Thanks for your help

How many subfolders you want to create?

Will they remain constant or dynamic?
