VBA Object does not support property or method

I copies this code from another thread by Bill Prew and modified it to work in Excel vba

it stops  at line  For Each objCheckFolder In objSubFolder.Folders  with error  Object does not support  property or method

any idea how to make this work and if there is any other issue to spot? thanks

Option Explicit



Sub macro()
    ' Local variables
    
Dim objFSO

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Dim objFolder
    Dim objFile
    Dim objSubFolder
    Dim objCheckFile
    Dim objCheckFolder
    Dim Flag
    Dim strFolder As String
strFolder = "C:\Users\James\Downloads\Myfolder\"
    ' Acess the folder
    Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strFolder)

    ' Check each file in this folder
    For Each objFile In objFolder.Files

        ' If file is old enough delete it
        If DateDiff("h", objFile.DateCreated, Now()) >= 24 Then
            objFile.Delete True
        End If

    Next

    ' Now check all folders
    For Each objSubFolder In objFolder.Subfolders

        If DateDiff("h", objSubFolder.DateCreated, Now()) >= 24 Then
            ' Assume we can delete it
            Flag = "yes"

            ' Any new files that prevent deletion
            For Each objCheckFile In objSubFolder.Files
                If DateDiff("h", objCheckFile.DateCreated, Now()) < 24 Then
                    Flag = "no"
                End If
            Next

            ' Any new folders that prevent deletion
            For Each objCheckFolder In objSubFolder.Folders
                If DateDiff("h", objCheckFolder.DateCreated, Now()) < 24 Then
                    Flag = "no"
                End If
            Next

            ' Delete folder if no newer items found
            If Flag = "yes" Then
                objSubFolder.Delete True
            End If
        End If

    Next

End Sub
