okay good.
Note that I chose to declare the base_directory as a variant because it's easy and convenient to check its status as Empty. That way I don't have to worry about Null strings or empty strings or blank strings :) As you can see from the sample sub, it works whether or not the calling function expects a string or a variant/string. It also tends to work well in Access generally since we have database data types and vba data types and that can be confusing in its own right.
