    Red face Retrieve SharePoint Folder names via REST API

    Good day,

    I am a noob to REST API, but has anyone got the experience to utilize the SharePoint REST API to retrieve Folder names via VBA? I am trying to populate a Userform Combobox with Folder names from a SharePoint Online Document Library.

    Any assistance would be appreciated as I have been searching for a solution for weeks now with no success.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Re: Retrieve SharePoint Folder names via REST API

    Thank you so much for the reply. I have the API string, which is essentially /_api/Web/GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl('Shared%20Documents/General/NewFolder')?$expand=Folders&$FilterField=Name but I need to know how I would get the data stored in VBA, then loop through the output to filter just the d:Name.
