RmDir Statement

See Also Example Specifics

Removes an existing directory or folder.



The required pathargument is a string expression that identifies the directory or folder to be removed. The path may include the drive. If no drive is specified, RmDir removes the directory or folder on the current drive.


An error occurs if you try to use RmDir on a directory or folder containing files. Use the Kill statement to delete all files before attempting to remove a directory or folder.
