   I am creating a web page that is currently being saved as an asp file.  One of the tasks I need to do is create a list of text files in a document on my network then list them on a page with a hyperlink enabling the client to read the text file when clicking the hyperlink on the list.  Can someone please help?  If you need some more information please let me know.

You can use FileSystemObject. Here is an example using VBScript:

Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set f = fs.GetFolder("C:\winnt")
Set fc = f.Files
For Each f1 in fc
Response.write & "<br>"

FileSystemObject doesn't come with IIS, it comes with Windows Scripting Host. Surf to and install WSH. You must install it on the IIS server

Do I put this code inside of the <head> tag?

Never Mind, I got it to work.  But I still need to know how to put file size and date created next to it.  If you can tell me that, the points are yours.

I think it is F1.Size and F1.Date, but it is in the WSH documentation...

  I tried that, but it didn't work.  It doesn't matter though because I did what i needed to do.  Thanks for the help.
