VBscript Create Folder

Here is a simple bit of VBscript code whidch we use a lot.

Imagine you have a script which needs to create a folder on the PC it is executing on if that folder doesn't already exist.

Here is a simple function that when called will check for the folder's existance, and if not found, will create it. There is no fancy error checking but will work fine if all permissions are OK.

Private Sub CheckFolder(ByVal f_Spec)
Dim fs As Scripting.FileSystemObject
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  If fs.FolderExists(f_Spec) Then
    Set fs = Nothing
    Exit Sub
  Else
    fs.CreateFolder f_Spec
    Set fs = Nothing
  End If
End Sub



Using the script is just a case of calling it like this

CheckFolder "C:\Docs\TestFolder"

 

If it doesn't exist already, it will be created.
