    kanaga kumar

      Dear Friends,

       

      I have copied script from "create folder hierarchy" (created from chinna), but i need small modification from their script, I have added the below comment for subfolder created purpose, its also created.

       

      But i need multiple folder created in same hierarchy (see the "my requirement" screen shot)

       

       

      var target = Folder.selectDialog("Choose a target folder"); 

      if(!(Folder(target+"/"+"Folder A")).exists) 

              new Folder(target + "/" + "PRODUCTION" + "/" + "APPL" + "/" + "DD-MM-YY").create(); 

          } 

       

      OUTPUT:

          Hi kanaga kumar,

          there are several ways to do this. With the script logic of chinna you can do something like this:

          var target = Folder.selectDialog("Choose a target folder");
          if(!(Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION")).exists) {
              new Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION").create();
              }
          if(!(Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION"+"/"+"APPL")).exists) {
              new Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION"+"/"+"APPL").create();
              }
          if(!(Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION"+"/"+"FONTS")).exists) {
              new Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION"+"/"+"FONTS").create();
              }
          if(!(Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION"+"/"+"IMAGES")).exists) {
              new Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION"+"/"+"IMAGES").create();
              }
          if(!(Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION"+"/"+"PDF")).exists) {
              new Folder(target+"/"+"PRODUKTION"+"/"+"PDF").create();
              }
          

           

          Have fun
