    Create folder from text file with Vbscript

    I am trying to make a script that will read from a text file and create those folders. In my text file it contains:

    This is the script. Can anyone help me fix it?

    dim objFileSys, objReadFile
    Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2, ForAppending = 8
    Set objFileSys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objReadFile = objFileSys.OpenTextFile("C:\Users\Susan\Documents\iMacros\Macros\file.txt", ForReading)
    Do until objReadFile.AtEndOfStream = True
    Set objReadFile = Nothing
    Set objFileSys = Nothing

    Your problem is with the directory names. For reasons unknown to me, the brackets are converted to angle brackets, which are an illegal character unless they are inside quotes. Also, if spaces are encountered that are not inside quotes, more than one directory will be created. Do the directory names need to be so convoluted?
