    I got a List with a vLookup on documents and Folders. Therefore I got now the problem not being able to have folders with the same name for multiple items.

    Each items represents a employee and there are 6 tabs with a reference (lookup) on documents. we want to have the same naming on the folders for all our employees without the need to add a stupid shortcode or anything similar.

    is there a way to have folders (which obviously have the same name) for multiple items?

    I hope this explanation is clear enough 🙂

    Sorry for late reply. Unfortunately you cannot have multiple folders with the same name. The only solution I can see is that you have two levels of folders – either with the employee name as level one folder, or maybe a better approach is to use the list item ID as base folder name.
