Dynamo - Folder Creation Module

The other day I was looking at ways to mass produce folders and now here you have a spreadsheet of values that create a series of folders! I'm aware this is also achievable through an excel macro, but I thought I would share Dynamo in a folder structure creation module! In this particular example I'm strictly referencing an excel spreadsheet and mapping each row to an initial directory specifier. The module cycles through each row and in turn creates a list of folders in the location!

You can also tie in additional columns to the the rows so that it feeds the description; however, it's important to note that in this case there are special characters in my excel list that will throw some errors in the folder structure without some error handling/exceptions.
Mass Folder Creation with Dynamo!

  2. Have you had problems using Dynamo to save to a network directory? When browsing to the folder I intend to work with through the "Directory Path" component there is just a blank area where the network folders should be. Does Dynamo need some special permissions or configuration to access network folders?
