Loop SharePoint folder structure

Hello guys,
You know how you can open Explorer to browse the SharePoint folder structure for a particular Document Library.

Is there a way to traverse such folder structure with VBScript?

The path in the Explorer is something like: http://sharepoint.local/site/library

I was able to create a network folder pointing to this SharePoint library, but I cannot figure out how to traverse such network folder with VBScript.

Your help is truly appreciated.

Yes, this can be done.  You first need to enable WebDav on your IIS server.  That will then let you map a drive to the SharePoint data.  From there you can use and of the standard objFSO methods.

I hope you find this post helpful.

WebDav enabled and now path can be accessed as \\sharepoint.local\DavWWWRoot\site\library

I appreciate your prompt response on this.
