I want to check that a folder exists whose name typically changes, as it is the date, followed by time, followed by a constant part.
I tried:
exist([pwd '\*constant'],'dir')
I know something like this works for files, but is there a way to handle this with folders? If anyone knows how to handle this, I'd appreciate it!

I believe isfolder function would be suitable for your task. Have you tried it?

Hi Emmanuel,
I guess exist works for folder also. Follow the link and look at point no. 7. Thanks.
