    @Pedie:

    Please see Here

    Please read Mr. Puls' article in the above link. I cannot imagine a kindlier way of advising reference cross-posting; kudos to Ken.

    I believe you mention working in 2007. .FileSearch was ditched in 2007. I would suggest you keep after xenou's suggestion, albeit, I would most likely go late-bound.

    Free Excel file to list files in a folder

    Hi,

    You can get a free Excel file that lists files in any selected folder automatically at the website below.

    excelwell-excel-templates.110mb.com

    Hope that helps.

    :o)

    nandakumar's link

    I really like that file Nandakumar, but does anyone know how to alter the macro code so it lists the contents of the specified folder AS WELL AS the contents of all its sub folders in the same way? You'd obviously need another column showing the folder name each file is in.

    That would be fantastic.

    Thanks
