sorry that was bugged

Code:
Public Sub CreateDirectoriesV2(ByVal address As String)
    
    Dim fs As New FileSystemObject
    Dim i As Integer: i = 1
    Dim str As String
    
    If Not fs.FolderExists(address) Then
        
        Do
            i = InStr(i + 1, address, "\")
            
            If i = 0 Then: Exit Do
            
            If Not fs.FolderExists(Mid(address, 1, i)) Then fs.CreateFolder Mid(address, 1, i)
        Loop
        
    End If
    
End Sub

Do you know about the Dir() function as well?

Kind of, but where do you think it applies here?

Hmmm... no conditions in your loop.

Just making you aware of an alternative for checking if a file or folder exists, and it can use pattern matching too, whereas the FSO one doesn't do pattern matching.

V3! Hahaha
Code:
Public Sub CreateDirectoriesV3(ByVal address As String)
    
    Dim fs As New FileSystemObject
    Dim var_split As Variant
    Dim path As String
    
    If Not fs.FolderExists(address) Then
        
        For Each var_split In Split(address, "\")
        
            path = path & var_split & "\"
            If Not fs.FolderExists(path) Then: fs.CreateFolder path
            
        Next
        
    End If
    
End Sub

I'm also not so sure on how to use Dir for these things.

Look it up in the help files in the VBA editor. It's easy to understand.

Better! Be careful so you don't go trying to create the root ;)

Thanks again for the guidance!
Just came back for the function, thought I'd give a thanks. =]
