VBScript- Move List of Computers to OU Within another OU

I am working on a script to move computers found in Active Directory to a Disabled Computers OU. The issue I am encountering is that each location has its own OU and the computers must be moved to the Disabled Computers for each location not just a general Disabled Computers OU. For example If a Location is Here then Under Here is the Disabled Computers OU. I am not sure what the proper syntax would be when setting the destination in the script.

I have tried several variations of the following
strNewOU = "LDAP://OU=Here\Disabled Computers," & strDNSDomain
strNewOU = "LDAP://OU=Here\" & """" & "Disabled Computers" & """" & "," & strDNSDomain
strNewOU = "LDAP://OU=Here\Disabled Computers" & strDNSDomain

None of these have worked. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi, the correct syntax is reverse order, so your structure
Domain.com/Here/Computers/Disabled Computers
Is represented by
strNewOU = "LDAP://OU=Disabled Computers,OU=Computers,OU=Here," & strDNSDomain

Regards,

Rob.
