    ASP Create Folder and Subfolder Question

    Hi, I got myself tangled in a web here..

    I am trying to create a folder and a sub-folder at the same time using FileSystemObject.

    The problem is that I am creating the first folder based on a variable (strUserName).. and I need to create a sub-folder within whatever that variable is..

    Am I in big trouble here or is there a solution to this one?

    The code below just makes the "sub-folder" outside the folder I need it in..

    Thanks!


    'Create an instance of the FileSystemObject
    'Dim objFSO
    'Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    'Create folder
    'If Not objFSO.FolderExists("e:\kunden\homepages\21\ d104772\mysite\members\uploads\" & strUserName & "sub-folder") then
    'objFSO.CreateFolder("e:\kunden\homepages\21\d104772\mendimusic\members\uploads\" & strUserName & "sub-folder")
    'End If

    You need to create your folder first, then your subfolder

    'Create an instance of the FileSystemObject
    'Dim objFSO
    'Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    'Create folder
    'If Not objFSO.FolderExists("e:\kunden\homepages\21\ d104772\mysite\members\uploads\" & strUserName & "sub-folder") then
    'objFSO.CreateFolder("e:\kunden\homepages\21\d104772\mendimusic\members\uploads\" & strUserName)
    'objFSO.CreateFolder("e:\kunden\homepages\21\d104772\mendimusic\members\uploads\" & strUserName & "\sub-folder")
    'End If

    Thanks so much for responding.

    I changed the code to what you did and it yielded the same results as before.

    .. To tell you the truth (yes I'm sorta developing this on the fly) I think what I'd much rather happen (if this is possible) is just copy an entire folder with all of it's files and folders to a newly created folder with the copy command. I was trying to cruch that one too, but couldn't figure out how to do it.

    Also, I found this information on this website (http://www.aspnut.com/news/detail.asp?id=16):

    -------
    Dim oFSO

    ' create FileSystemObject
    Set oFSO=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    ' check if folder exists
    If Not oFSO.FolderExists(Server.MapPath("/data/abc")) Then
    ' do something
    End If

    Using code such as this, you could easily create a procedure to
    automatically create folders that don't already exist when a file is being
    saved. You can have this code repeated (recursively) to create a folder
    structure of any depth.
    ---------

    ..it looks like a good theory but I wouldn't know where to start..

    You still need to create the new directory to which an existing directory will be copied before attempting a copy.

    I use this recursive function:

    Code:
    function createpath(mypath)
    	set fsob=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    	if fsob.FolderExists(mypath)=false and len(mypath)>3 then
    			createpath(mid(mypath,1,instrrev(mypath,"\")-1))
    			fsob.CreateFolder(mypath)
    	end if
    	set fsob=nothing
    end function
