Creating a folder structure based on excel template

I am trying to create a folder structure based on an excel template. There is a folder structure has logic to it, it is just multi-faceted so I'm struggling to implement for each loops and if statements to do this. I have attached a screenshot (because I didn't see where I could attach a file below). The logic is essentially, within each fileroom, there are folders and subsequent subfolders. A folder is below another folder based on the 'FolderLevel' column. The folder name should be what is in the 'Index' column, followed by an underscore, followed by what is in the 'Title' column. For example:


1.1 is within 1. 1.2 is within 1. 1.3 is within 1. So 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 are all subfolders of 1. The file paths of this scenario would look like this:






Further on,








I tried identifying the previous row and comparing the current row to the previous row but that doesn't always work because I can have multiple subfolders at one level before moving to the next level.


Any help would be great! Thanks!
