VB Script for setting up new folders

HI,
I have a client who we want to set up a VBScript to create a new Job folder. Basically this job folder is going to have multiple sub-folders which then have another lot of sub-folders under them.
I haven’t had much experience with VB Scripting so was hoping someone might be able to give me an idea on how to script this.
Ultimately we would also like to have the script go ahead and apply differing NTFS permissions as well.
The folder structure would roughly look like this;
1.      Folder 1
a.      Folder 1.1
i.      Folder 1.1.1
b.      Folder 1.2
i.      Folder 1.2.1
ii.      Folder 1.2.2
c.      Folder 3
d.      Folder 4
i.      Folder 4.1
ii.      Folder RFI#
e.      Folder 5
f.      Folder 6
i.      Folder 6.1
ii.      Folder VO#
g.      Folder 7
i.      Folder 7.1
ii.      Folder PC #
h.      Folder
i.      Folder 8.1
ii.      Folder 8.2
i.      Folder 9
i.      Folder 9.1
ii.      Folder 9.2
iii.      Folder 9.3
j.      Folder 10
i.      Folder 10.1
ii.      Folder 10.2
k.      Folder 11
i.      Folder 11.1
ii.      Folder 11.2
iii.      Folder 11.3
iv.      Folder 11.4
v.      Folder 11.5
vi.      Folder 11.6

Hopefully this makes sense.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

there  are many examples for vbscript and directory creation as well as the use or/application of ACL
in your case, you could have a CSV file from which the directories will be created and where your security/ntfs settings are defined.

in your case the entries have to be manually added given it is not a scriptable directory name 1-100, etc.

Hi Arnold,
Thanks for your reply.
Attached is how the folders would be actually named and laid out.
Would you happen to have any good examples i could refer to for this?
