Loop SharePoint folder structure

Loop SharePoint folder structure

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.


RE: Loop SharePoint folder structure

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.

RE: Loop SharePoint folder structure

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

I appreciate your prompt response on this.
