Excel VBA Introduction Part 22 – Files and Folders
The Scripting Runtime Object Library allows you to easily write code in an Excel VBA project which can manipulate the file and folder structure of your computer. It’s and incredibly useful, although potentially quite dangerous thing to be able to do and this video will show you how. You’ll learn how to reference the Scripting Runtime Library, what a FileSystemObject is and how to use it and how to perform various methods such as create folders, copy and move files and even how to delete them. Towards the end of the video you’ll see how to loop over a collection of files in a single folder and then, as an encore, how you can loop through the complete set of folders and subfolders from a given starting point.
