"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


pls try

Sub Macro()
DeleteEmptyFolders "c:\TestFolder"
End Sub

Public Sub DeleteEmptyFolders(ByVal strFolderPath As String)
   Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   If Not oFSO.FolderExists(strFolderPath) Then Exit Sub
   Set oFolder = oFSO.GetFolder(strFolderPath)
   On Error Resume Next
   If oFolder.SubFolders.Count > 0 Then
        lngFolder = 1
        ReDim strPaths(1 To oFolder.SubFolders.Count)

        For Each fsoSubFolder In oFolder.SubFolders
            strPaths(lngFolder) = fsoSubFolder.Path
            lngFolder = lngFolder + 1
        Next fsoSubFolder
        lngSubFolder = 1
        Do While lngSubFolder < lngFolder
           Call DeleteEmptyFolders(strPaths(lngSubFolder))
