FolderExists Method

Returns True if a specified folder exists; False if it does not.


                      object.FolderExists(folderspec) 

object

Required. Always the name of a FileSystemObject.

folderspec

Required. The name of the folder whose existence is to be determined. A complete path specification (either absolute or relative) must be provided if the folder isn't expected to exist in the current folder.

The following example illustrates the use of the FolderExists method.

function ReportFolderStatus(fldr)
{
   var fso, s = fldr;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
   if (fso.FolderExists(fldr))
      s += " exists.";
   else 
      s += " doesn't exist.";
   return(s);
}

Function ReportFolderStatus(fldr)
   Dim fso, msg
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   If (fso.FolderExists(fldr)) Then
      msg = fldr & " exists."
   Else
      msg = fldr & " doesn't exist."
   End If
   ReportFolderStatus = msg
End Function
