## Macro to check if exact path exists based on server name

Hello community,

I want to transfer my Excel macro (see below) to QlikView in order to get the following job done:

I retrieve five files from five servers.

Each file contains a list of paths to certain folders on that particular server. I want to check if those exact paths actually exist on that server and mark it green or red in QlikView.

Details:

Each file contains the following path column with records like so:

{SERVERPATH}\abc\def\ghi\123\456\folderX

{SERVERPATH}\xyz\uvw\rst\789\123\456\folderY

{SERVERPATH}\one\two\three\four\five\six\seven\folderZ

In an inline table I use the filename as a key and add the column serverpath.

SERVERPATH

\\server1\subdir

\\server2\subdir

\\server3\subdir

\\server4\subdir

\\server5\subdir

So my goal would be to select one file in QlikView and then click a button which checks if those paths listed in the file actually exist on the corresponding server.

My working Excel-Macro looks like this:

Dim MyCheckDir As String
Dim iRow As Integer
iRow = 2
Do Until IsEmpty(Cells(iRow, 3))

MyCheckDir = Range("SERVERPATH").Value & Mid(Cells(iRow, 3).Value, 12) & "\"

If Dir(MyCheckDir, vbDirectory) <> "" Then
Cells(iRow, 6).Value = "OK"
Else
Cells(iRow, 6).Value = "NO"
End If
iRow = iRow + 1
Loop


Hope you can show me a way to get this done with QlikView.

Thank you,

Thorsten

## Re: Macro to check if exact path exists based on server name

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If objFSO.FolderExists("C:\FSO") Then

Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("C:\FSO")

Wscript.Echo "Folder binding complete."

Else

Wscript.Echo "Folder does not exist?"

End If

but how do I get the field values with the correct serverpath from QlikView in the FolderExists and GetFolder functions?
