I created a script that takes the input and creates 4 folders and one sub folder in the last folder. The part I'm getting stuck at is the last folder, I want the input minus the first 4 characters..

The code I have is:
_______________________________________________________________

rem This will create all the folders necessary

Dim fso, l, a, b, c, d, f, g, i, j, k, m, n, Input, beforefile, afterfile,fldr,fc,f1
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Input = InputBox("Place name of your directory here starting with area code-.")
Set j = fso.CreateFolder("c:\FOLDER\" & Input & "")
Set a = fso.CreateFolder("c:\FOLDER\" & Input & "\DIR1")
Set b = fso.CreateFolder("c:\FOLDER\" & Input & "\DIR2")
Set d = fso.CreateFolder("c:\FOLDER\" & Input & "\DIR3")
Set i = fso.CreateFolder("c:\FOLDER\" & Input & "\DIR4")
Set n = fso.CreateFolder("c:\FOLDER\" & Input & "\DIR4\" & Input)
___________________________________________________________


So for example, if I put in 410-TEST in the above, it would create a directory at c: called "FOLDER" and then under that 4 Directories called DIR1, DIR2, DIR3, DIR4, and under DIR4 it would take the Input (410-TEST) and place a folder under DIR4 called 410-TEST

What I'm trying to do in this case would be to have the 410- taken out of DIR4 and it would just display "TEST".

Is this possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated....

This will just output the "TEST" string

input = Mid("410-TEST", InStr("410-TEST", "-")+1)
