Hi

I have folders on dropbox. as follows
C:\Users\Public\Dropbox\Client\DirectSales\EnvirpPacific.

My question is how can I using vba change the name or delete the folder EnviroPacific

I can change a root folder name
Dim strOldDirName As String
Dim strNewDirName As String
 
strOldDirName = "C:\Zmyfolder"

strNewDirName = "C:\Pfolder"
Name strOldDirName As strNewDirName

I get errors when I add Sub folders.

Any help would be appreciated

What do you mean by that? Do you mean you get an error when you try this:

Name "C:\Folder1\Folder2" As "C:\Folder1\FolderB"

If so, what is the error?

Chestra,

 I had no problem doing:

Name "C:\TEMP\TEST1" as "C:\TEMP\TEST2"

 'TEST1' being a sub-folder.   Note that you can't rename a folder that's open.

What's the error your getting?  

Jim.

My apologies. With my example I got and error on the last line Name path not found although the path was or looked correct so I rewrote as follows

Dim strOldDirName As String
Dim strNewDirName As String

strOldDirName = "C:\FolderA\FolderB"

strNewDirName = "C:\FolderA\FolderC\"
Name strOldDirName As strNewDirName

This time no problems. Must have been a glitch in my first attempt

I will split the points
