File Access Error VBA Renaming Folder

Kam Published in 2018-01-12 17:34:39Z

I am able to rename files and folders from windows explorer. When I try to rename folder pragmatically, it gives file access error:

            Name ActiveCell.Value As ActiveCell.Value + " MOVED"

Run-time error '75': Path/File access error

Where ActiveCell.Value is: "S:\Allied MTRS\Not Scanned\FITTINGS AND FLANGES\TI3 AR 214"

This is a puzzle. Here is some other information to help understand the problem better.

The "Name" statement that fails lives inside of code.

After my program crashes, if I try the same Name statement in a separate routine that I code up, it still doesn't work:

Sub tryitz()

    Name "S:\Allied MTRS\Not Scanned\FITTINGS AND FLANGES\TI3 AR 214" As "S:\Allied MTRS\Not Scanned\FITTINGS AND FLANGES\TI3 AR 214 MOVED"

End Sub

Interestingly enough, through, when I close the excel and reopen the excel again, the tryitz() routine works without error.

That lead me to believe that something in excel is holding on.
I never really did a file open. I just did a bunch of file moves. But nevertheless, I tried to do Close before the Move, to see if that would work.

Name ActiveCell.Value As ActiveCell.Value + " MOVED"

It did not work.

Here is my complete routine (you may not need to read all of it, but I did include the main code (ApplyPrefix) followed by the GetFileList routine, which is also invoked by the main mode:

Option Explicit

Const CalcErrorText = "Can't Calculate!"
Const AppliedText = ""

    Sub ApplyPrefix()

        'On Error GoTo CatchAll
        'On Error GoTo 0

        Dim r As Range
        Set r = ActiveSheet.Range("A5")

        Dim Target As String
        Target = ActiveSheet.Range("A2").Value

        Do While ActiveCell.Value <> ""

            If ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Value = CalcErrorText Or ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Value = AppliedText Then
                'skip it.

                Dim p As String
                p = ActiveCell.Value

                Dim t As String
                t = Left(p, 2)

                If Right(t, 1) = ":" Then   'xxxx
                    ChDrive t
                    ChDir p

                    Dim ndx As Integer
                    Dim FileList3 As Variant
                    FileList3 = GetFileList(p + "\*.pdf")
                    If IsArray(FileList3) Then
                        For ndx = LBound(FileList3) To UBound(FileList3)
                            Call DeleteIfBrokenFile(ActiveCell.Value, FileList3(ndx))
                    End If

                    Dim FileList As Variant
                    FileList = GetFileList(p + "\*.pdf")

                    If IsArray(FileList) Then
                        For ndx = LBound(FileList) To UBound(FileList)

                            Dim ApplyPrefix As String
                            ApplyPrefix = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Value

                            Dim s As String
                            s = FileList(ndx)

                            Dim MoveFrom As String
                            Dim MoveTo As String
                            MoveFrom = ActiveCell.Value + "\" + FileList(ndx)

                            If GetFirstWord(s, " ") = ApplyPrefix Then  'zzzz
                                'File is already Renamed

                                MoveTo = Target + "\" + RemoveDotsInFileName(FileList(ndx))


                                MoveTo = Target + "\" + ApplyPrefix + " " + RemoveDotsInFileName(FileList(ndx))

                                If Len(MoveTo) > 240 Then
