    bulk folder creation

    Does anyone know of a way that I can create large amounts of folders for users home directories. I have a csv file with pupil names and I would like them converted into folders!

    I have read the threads on here but none of them were very useful. I don't know enough about scripts to write one to do it.

    Can anyone help me?

    If a1 contains jsmith

    in b1 put in ="mkdir d:\home\students\" & a1

    This would fill b1 with mkdir d:\home\students\jsmith you can fill the fomula down copy and paste it in a blank notepad document and you have batch file to use.
