Help with multiple DirCreate

Recommended Posts


Im trying to write a script which will create x amount of folders with a given name using an array or similar.

But im having trouble getting the folders to be created exactly where i want them to be using an array.

My example code is:

#include <Array.au3>

$text = "Clients\"
$user = "Paul\Chris\Frank\"
$array = StringSplit($user, '\', 1)

Dircreate("C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\desktop\" & $text & $user)

I understand the way i have written is its not correct for my purpose but i am unable to work out how i rewrite it so it is.

Ill explain what i want to do.

I want to first create a folder called Clients, then create multiple subfolders called Paul, Chris and Frank.

The problem i have is, each sub folder is being created inside the previous, rather than all being created in the Clients folder.

Example: Result is Clients\Paul\Chris\Frank

But i want




How can i modify the code to achieve this? Thanks for any help you can give.
