' create a nested directory
' it's similar to MkDir, but it also creates
' all intermediary sub-directories

Sub MakePath(ByVal path As String)
    Dim i As Integer, ercode As Long
    On Error Resume Next
        ' get the next path chunk
        i = InStr(i + 1, path & "\", "\")
        ' try to create this sub-directory
        MkDir Left$(path, i - 1)
        If Err = 0 Then
            ' the directory has been created
            ' do nothing
        ElseIf Err = 75 Then
            ' Path\File Access Error: the directory exists
            ' do nothing
            ' we can't continue if any other error
            ercode = Err
            On Error GoTo 0
            Err.Raise ercode
