How to import component in react native past two folders?

Whenever I try to import a component that is two or more folders back I get an issue. Using ../Folder works fine, but if I try to use …/Folder I get a module error. How do I get through the directory?

Method 1

Use ../.. to go up two directories.

Method 2

If you are trying to import for example index.css,
case 1: Same folder
import ‘./index.css’;

import ‘../index.css’;

Method 3

Now for 2 levels and so on append “../”

This is for 2 level back.
