Hi Experts,
Im trying to loop the user input until they gave me a valid folder path or choose to exit the program by chosing "No" option. However, it keeps looping eventhough i have insert the correct path. The "yes" and 'no" option works. How do i exit the loop and move on to the next code. Appreciate your time on reading my question. Thanks in advance. Any help is welcome.

'Set Folders to Compare
folderLoop = True
Do While folderLoop

strFolder1 = InputBox("Enter Source Folder 1 Path :")
strFolder2 = InputBox("Enter Source Folder 2 Path :")


'Check if Folders Exist
If Not (objFSO.FolderExists(strFolder1 & "\") and objFSO.FolderExists(strFolder2 & "\")) Then
  MsgBox("Failed")

reply = msgbox("Enter folder again?", vbYesNo)
   if reply = vbYes Then
   folderLoop = True
   end if

   if reply = vbNo Then
   folderLoop = False
      Wscript.Echo "Quitting Script!"
    Wscript.quit
   end if

End if

Loop

On Error Resume Next

Or perhaps add lines 24 and 25.
'Set Folders to Compare
folderLoop = True
Do While folderLoop

strFolder1 = InputBox("Enter Source Folder 1 Path :")
strFolder2 = InputBox("Enter Source Folder 2 Path :")


'Check if Folders Exist
If Not (objFSO.FolderExists(strFolder1 & "\") and objFSO.FolderExists(strFolder2 & "\")) Then
  MsgBox("Failed")

reply = msgbox("Enter folder again?", vbYesNo)
   if reply = vbYes Then
   folderLoop = True
   end if

   if reply = vbNo Then
   folderLoop = False
      Wscript.Echo "Quitting Script!"
    Wscript.quit
   end if

Else
    folderLoop = False
End if

Loop

On Error Resume Next
