Can I "repeat With Folders"

This is probably an easy one - for someone who knows the answer.

 

I want to make it easy to find a folder even if: (1) I only know which of 5 main folders it would be in and I have no idea of which of the scores of sub-folders might contain it; and, (2) I know part but not all of the folder name.

 

First I enter the search term and assign it to %T91%.

 

Then I use a MultiChoice Menu to select the likely main folder, and assign its name to %T94%

 

Then I wanted to use a "Repeat with Folders" command to check each subfolder within the selected main folder. I tell it to look in "F:\WP\%T94% and its subfolder, to return full path folder names and to put them into %T93%.

 

The program tells me: "The specified path "F:\wp\%T94% does not exist."

 

Is the problem that the "Repeat with Folders" command won't accept variables?

 

Thanks for any help you can give.

Here's the code:

 

Variable Set String %T91% from Prompt

Variable Set String %T11% "ADMIN"

Variable Set String %T12% "Cases"

Variable Set String %T13% "CD"

Variable Set String %T14% "ClientLeases"

Variable Set String %T15% "Forms"

Multiple Choice Menu: Which folder

Text Box Display: Just after multiple

Variable Modify String: Delete Part of %T94%

Repeat with Folder <===== Where Folder=F:\WP\%t94%

If Variable %T93% contains variable %T91%

Text Box Display: %T93% and %N1%

Else

End If

Repeat End

Jeff -

No. The command does accept variables. Posting the native Macro Express code along with the command text would help the group determine what the problem may be.
