vba – Path not found error when trying to access sharepoint

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am using this code to loop through the files in sharepoint using excel VBA. This code is working fine when I am using the local drive path. But when I replace the path with my sharepoint path, I am getting an error saying ‘Path Not Found’ at fs.GetFolder

Please kindly advice

Code I am using is:

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()

Dim folder As Variant
Dim f As File
Dim fs As New FileSystemObject
Dim fs1 As New OLEObject
Dim RowCtr As Integer
Dim FPath As String
Dim wb As Workbook
FPath = "my URL"
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
RowCtr = 1
Set folder = fs.GetFolder(FPath)
'<=Variable Location
For Each f In folder.Files
   Cells(RowCtr, 1).Value = f.Name
   RowCtr = RowCtr + 1
Next f
End Sub
How to&Answers:

You’ll need to map sharepoint to a Windows drive letter, as outlined in SharePoint StackExchange. Once it’s mapped you’ll be able to open as a local drive path.
