Anyone have a nice, tight, VBA routine to ask for a folder name and add it? Could also take the folder name from a cell.
 

Excel Facts

What is the last column in Excel?
Excel columns run from A to Z, AA to AZ, AAA to XFD. The last column is XFD.
I guess you would have to define nice and tight. :) Though, it might be faster and less controversial to look up MkDir in XL VBA help.

Thanks for your response... I went with the following:

Sub createfolder()

Dim MyDir As String
MyDir = [B1] & "\" & [b2]
On Error GoTo Exists

MkDir MyDir
Exit Sub
Exists: MsgBox "Already exists...change B2", vbExclamation

End Sub

B1 is the path to the folder, B2 is the new one
