It works for me. Use this exact code

Code:
Function DirExists(sSDirectory As String) As Boolean
If Dir(sSDirectory, vbDirectory) <> "" Then DirExists = True
End Function

Sub test()
Dim myDir As String
myDir = ActiveWorkbook.Path
If Not DirExists(myDir & "\ALL Cuts Consolidated") Then
        MkDir myDir & "\ALL Cuts Consolidated"
End If
End Sub
