I was wondering if there is any way to create and show a list of all new files (lets say modified the last seven days) on a webpage in MS IIS. I would appreciate any help including those using FrontPage.

Dont know front page, however you can use perl to do the job.
Its simple, check the mod date compare to curent date if less than 7 days old make a link to it and store it in a list. After you have compared all the files print out youre resulting list.
Thats it.

Yeah, I guess that is true.

But if I'm running IIS (I don't think it supports Perl, but correct me if I'm wrong), do I have to scan through all pages and compare them (with vbscript in asp for example). I hoped it should be some way to use the index feature.

sorry, dont know asp, it may have a built in feature where you just request the files younger than a certain date in a certain directory, however you can use perl with IIS like I said that can do the job.  I know that you probably dont want to learn another programming language but if you work with the web you really cant go wrong learning perl it is easy and has one of the best regex engines out there.

Anyway, I would suggest if asp doesnt support that as a built in feature then you could write the same thing I suggested to do in perl with vb script.

I'll post this as an answer,
you can except it.

If you have a paticular perl question later I'll be happy to answer it.

Thanks
