Try to create a Dir  if it does not exist

Calling  a sub called

strUsername = "zzzzzz"

But this is not creating a directory under that path

Sub mkdirtest()
Dim strFolderPath As String

strFolderPath = Environ("USERPROFILE") & strUsername & "\Access_Export\"

CheckDir (strFolderPath)

End Sub

Function CheckDir(Path As String)
Dim strUsername As String

strUsername = Environ("username")

    If Dir(Path, vbDirectory) = "" Then
        MkDir (Path)
      '  MsgBox "Making Directory!"
        ' copy the file from the desktop
        FileCopy "C:\Users\" & strUsername & "\desktop\Export_Import.xlsx", "C:\Users\" & strUsername & "\Access_Export\Export_Import.xlsx"
    'End If
    ';    MsgBox "Dir Exists!"
    End If

End Function
