Hello there.
Let's say you have a file called clients.txt with the following contents

Albert\Birthday
Albert\Wedding
John\Daughter\Birthday
John\Sister\Wedding
Martin
Michael
John Doe

the console command

for /f "delims=" %t IN (clients.txt) do mkdir "%t"

will create the following folder structure, without needing an external program



Have fun, and welcome to the forums!

scancode:
Oh, in case the command line scares you, here's a little batch file.
Just drop it where your clients.txt file lays, and double click it.

skwire:
Slick batch command, scancode.  Nice.

reddie247, if the commandline isn't your thing, I've whipped together an AHK script with a GUI if you're interested.
