how to check if directories exists against listbox items

SIFNOk asked:

Open original thread
Hi All,

i was wondering if anyone could assist. i have a form with 2 listbox, that allows user to enter in a directory path that is then populated in to the listbox1. I have a button on the form that i want to be able to press which cycle through the listbox items and checks if the directory exists.

i was thinking it would be something along the lines of :
     For Each something In listbox1
     if = false then
           'in second listbox display missing directory
         listbox2.item.add("does not exist " & somethinghere2)
             'if the directory does exist
            'do nothing
     end if

this is for purpose to help me with my job, so i dont have to manually check if users have deleted directories overnite.... im not much of a programmer but any help would be great.
