mkdir creates file instead of directory

mkdir creates file instead of directory

Post by Sm9hY2hpb » Fri, 27 Apr 2007 03:14:03

When I have mkdir as a post-build event in VS .NET 2005 it creates a file
instead of a folder. Is this a bug in VS .NET 2005? Is there a patch for this?

1. mkdir creates file instead of directory ...

2. MkDir won't create a directory and sub directory at the same time

For instances where my FolderPath value is "C:\MyQuotation\Jan" it won't
create the directory. Is there something I can do to correct the code?

Dim Path As String

If Not IsNull(DLookup("FolderPath", "UserPass")) Then
Path = (DLookup("FolderPath", "UserPass"))
End If

If Dir(Path, vbDirectory) = "" Then
MkDir Path
End If

Dim strLinkPath As String
Dim objShell As Object

If Path = "" Then
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strLinkPath = objShell.SpecialFolders("MyDocuments")
strLinkPath = Path
End If
