Seems like external scripts and dictionaries are a theme today.  You need to check python manuals for file handling.  Its a simple implementation.  Then you would parse out names and title and put them in a dictionary and return.

then in replace range(1...10) as seen in earlier messages with something *like*

for n in yourDictionary: 
 container.manage_addFolder(id = n, title = yourDictionary[n])

Thanks David,

That works fine although it is a little crude. What I'd like to be able to 
do is create folders with names and titles derived from an external File 
where each line contains the name and title, separated by a comma.

Guess I need to find out how to get python to read lines from a Zope File

Is there any way to create folders in batch?

I need to create around 50 but don't fancy doing this manually.



Put this in a python script and test.

for n in range(10):
   container.manage_addFolder(id= str(n))
