    I have the folder key­words in col­umn A, Direc­tory( Path) in col­umn B. I need a a macro that search for the folder with key­word in the direc­tory and out­put the folder present/ folder not present in col­umn C and if present it should out­put mod­i­fied date of that folder in col­umn D.

    Col­umn A: 20140605
    Directory(Path)- \\nasmsb1\ap\ISBPRO\Atwater\IMPORT\HISTORY\DMV_CASB_RO_R60_PLATE_Errors

    Col­umn C: Folder present/ Folder not present ( Expected out­put)
    Col­umn D: 5/6/2014 11:25 PM

    I need a macro with loop( iteration)

    Thanks in advance for your help

      It sudnt take much time I guess. Get the rows count using usedrange.rows.count …iter­ate the rows, get the path from col­umn A ..check the folder and dis­play the sta­tus to the cor­re­spond­ing rows. Keep iter­at­ing.
      Do let me know if u face any prob..I will pro­vide the entire implementation.
