Create Folder in MS Access

Let say you want to create a new folder if it does not exist when you run your application, here is the sample code:

Dim strFolder As String
strFolder = "C:\New Folder"

Dim fso
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

‘Check whether the folder exists
If Not fso.FolderExists(strFolder) Then
FileSystem.MkDir (strFolder)
End If

I've used Access for years but never had the occasion where I needed to create a folder with VBA. I was normally the person that would set everything up for the user, so I didn't have to worry about it. This worked perfectly. I tried various methods that did work and even modified a few of them and nothing. This was perfect.

Could you possibly detail where to put this code, and how to call it from, say, a macro? Thanks.
