duplicating folders

  SDJ 10:03 18 Feb 2004

I am about to create about 3000 folders all named according to my client list using a fantastic little program called Folder Maker by Skyjuicesoftware.com.

The only thing left to do is to create four subfolders, Correspondence, Accounts, Working Papers and Invoices, in each of the folders.

Is there a way of copying these subfolders into every parent folder in one go?

Suggestions will be most appreciated.

cant seem to get it to work for me. Can anyone shed any light on this?

I have been given this to put into a command prompt FOR /D %v IN (*.*) DO MD %v\Correspondence

This should set up the folder Correspondence in every folder I have within the following:-

c:\client folders\Smith MrA 10001
c:\client folders\Jones Mr B 10002

The only problem with it is that it does funny things to me folders, it splits them up and duplicates them. It doesnt seem to do what its supposed to do.
Are my folders not compatible with this sort of command (ie not using _ between characters)?
Any suggestions?
