How to create a folder with QTP?
Dim strDrive, strfoldername,objFSO, objFolder, strPath strDrive = "c:" 'Drive where you want to create the folder strfoldername="test" 'Name of the folder to be created strPath= strDrive&strfoldername ' Create FileSystemObject.

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") On Error Resume Next ' Incase folder already exist ' Create a Folder, using strPath Set objFolder = objFSO.CreateFolder(strPath) If err.Number = 58 then 'VB Script Run Time Error 58 -File Already exists msgbox "Folder already exist at" & strPath exitTest End If msgbox "Folder created is at " & strPath

On Error Resume Next 'Incase folder is not found objFSO.DeleteFolder(strPath) If err.Number =76 then 'VB Script Run Time Error 76 -File Not Found msgbox "Folder Not Found at " & strPath exitTest End If msgbox "Folder is deleted from " & strPath

Instead of using the err object as shown above, you can simply use .FolderExists()
If objFSO.FolderExists(strpath)= “True” then msgbox “Folder Already Exists” End If
