Suppose, we have an Excel file with name "Data_Details. xlsx". And it containing two column header with name "Folder_Name" containing a list of folder’s name and "Files_Details" containing a list of file’s name.

Now, type formula in column C as described in following instruction.
Folder_Name Files_Details
00000A 000001.jpg =CONCATENATE ("MKDIR",A2)
=CONCATENATE : Merge cells formula.
MKDIR : Batch script to create folder.

Here, CONCATENATE is a function to merge cells with external query.
Write formula in column C as [=CONCATENATE(A2, "\", B2)]. This will show the output in column C as "00000A\000001.jpg".

Now, the next step to apply formula for copy and paste files with its related folder. So, once again we have to apply "=CONCATENATE()" formula in column F. The following Instruction will help to understand.
Folder_Name Files_Details Source_Path
00000A 000001.jpg MKDIR 00000A D:\SKOTechlearn… " =CONCATENATE("Copy ",E2,D2,"\",B2,E2," ",C2,"\",B2)
