    Hello,

    Basically I'm trying to write a script to do a basic repetitive action.

    I have endless amounts of files, but for examples sake, I will just say 3 files.

    doc1 doc2 and doc3.

    I need to create folders for those files so they are named doc1 doc2 and doc3 and in those folders are the relevant files.

    I'm trying to write a script so I don't have to create a new folder then rename it doc1 then place the file in it, followed by creating another new folder, naming it doc2 then putting the doc2 file in it and so an so on.

    This would save me a massive amount of time as I have to do this for 1000's of files.

    So if anyone has any ideas of a script or anything that would give me something similar to do that I would be incredibly grateful.

    Thanks

    I do not know about "Script", but I could point you in the right direction using Excel or Access VBA.
    But I have to ask the question, why do you need seperate folders for each File?

    The reason for needin seperate folders for each file because related to each file there will be an image to go with it in the near future for me. So I need a folder to put both the file and image within it, also I forgot to mention, it needs to be just a normal windows folder and not a zip file or anything

    Thanks
