Default Folder reorganizing

In a folder am having N no of documents and all the file names will have 3 common names followed as “-ConvetedTables” “- EnglishTables” “-NativeTables_Translated” I want to move the files tagged with “-ConvetedTables” to “Converted folder” and “- EnglishTables” to “EnglishTables” folder and “-NativeTables_Translated” to “NativeTables_Translated” folder.



I need a macro for this can anyone help me…

A folder has to create in the same path with the names (ConvetedTables, EnglishTables, NativeTables_Translated) and move all the files to the respective folders tagged with the names as -ConvetedTables, -EnglishTables, -NativeTables_Translated

For every file name first eight digits are numbers only, it is fixed for every file, and documents formats “.doc” “.docx” “.pdf”

Your help will be highly appreciated….

You don't need a macro for this. Simply:
1. Create the destination folders
2. Sort the files by name;
3. Drag the sorted files to their respective folders.

It would take longer to write the macro than doing it manually.

Thanks for your prompt response....
Am gaining more productivity with your help....

Currently am doing the same practices but somewhere it is missing and copying wrong files into the folder and again re-checking where it has been missed taking more time and that this is happened due to more no. of files in folder (200+ files) and it is difficult to handle at a time. So am trying for the perfection in this …..

Am having the below code, can you modify according to my need....

Thanks in advance….

Code:
Sub FolderizeFiles()

    Dim fso As Object, fldr As Object, subFldr As Object, fle As Object
    Dim fldrNew As String
    
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set fldr = fso.GetFolder("C:\Users\xuza\test")
        
    For Each fle In fldr.Files
        If Right(fso.GetBaseName(fle), 14) = "-EnglishTables" Then
            fldrNew = fldr.Path & "\" & fso.GetBaseName(fle)
        
            If Not fso.FolderExists(fldrNew) Then
                fso.CreateFolder fldrNew
            End If
            
            fso.MoveFile _
                Source:=fle.Path, _
                Destination:=fldrNew & "\" & fle.Name
        End If
    Next fle
    
    For Each fle In fldr.Files
        For Each subFldr In fldr.SubFolders
            If Left(subFldr.Name, 8) = Left(fle.Name, 8) Then
                fso.MoveFile _
                    Source:=fle.Path, _
                    Destination:=subFldr.Path & "\" & fle.Name
                Exit For
            End If
        Next subFldr
    Next fle

End Sub

Really, if you sort the files as I suggested before moving them, it doesn't matter how many files there are and, unless you're careless, you shouldn't end up with any files in the wrong folder.
