Hello,
I found this code which I know will work, however, the first folder the code finds I don't have permission to open. What is the correct way to bypass this folder and move to the next?

Thanks,
Brian

VBA Code:
Sub findFolder()

    Dim searchFolderName As String
    searchFolderName = "C:\Users\"

    Dim FileSystem As Object

    Set FileSystem = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    doFolder FileSystem.GetFolder(searchFolderName)



End Sub

Sub doFolder(Folder)
    Dim subFolder
    Dim subFolder2 As String
    On Error Resume Next
    For Each subFolder In Folder.subfolders
        If Split(subFolder, "\")(UBound(Split(subFolder, "\"))) = "SSA HDT(s)" Then
        subFolder2 = Right(subFolder, 25)
            MsgBox "gotcha"
        End
        End If

        doFolder subFolder
    Next subFolder

End Sub
 

Excel Facts

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

So, I'm basically getting the following on this folder "Run-time error '70' permission denied". I would like to goto Next subFolder if possible.
