itjockey,

I have used the code from Chip Pearson's MakeMultiStepDirectory for several projects and it has worked well for me.   The full code and explanation of the steps is located at:

The attached file should create your subdirectories of Sector and Company names.   The program requires that you provide a Base subdirectory that already exists and your subdirectory names will be created below that base directory.   If you want to include periods in the subdirectory names, you must check the checkbox as shown below.  The fully qualified subdirectory name that will be created is in the column "SubDirName".Q_28524413 worksheet pageQ-28524413-Create-Multiple-Subdirectorie

Mr.ProdOps,

I thought it will take at least 30 Second to create all folders. But what happened - one click and done.....surprised ...  :)
 If you want to include periods in the subdirectory names, you must check the checkbox as shown below.  The fully qualified subdirectory name that will be created is in the column "SubDirName".

As my question is solved ...just for understanding ...what do I mean y this?

Thank you very Much

If you want to include periods in the subdirectory names, you must check the checkbox as shown below.
The code originally written by Chip Pearson checks for a period after the last slash (\)  in the subdirectory name.  If it finds a period after the last slash, it assumes the name is a file name and skips that record, not creating the subdirectory name.  As an Example, if it found the record - "C:\User\ITJockey\Medical\Vitacorp\ExpenseReports.xlsm" within the list, it would skip that record and move to the next one.

There were four records in the data you provided that had periods as part of the Company name.  In order to create those four, I added an IF statement in the VBA code to see if the Checkbox was checked and bypass the check for a period after the last slash if it was.

HTH,
Jerry
