Does it have to be VBA or will Batch work?  

Here it is the batch file:

rem @echo off

for /l %%i in (1,1,10) do copy %%i*.jpg c:\Images_2014\%%i_jpg\

echo copy complete
pause

Open in new window

You would either run from within that folder or change line 3 to:

for /l %%i in (1,1,10) do copy d:\Images_2014\%%i*.jpg c:\Images_2014\%%i_jpg\

Open in new window
