hi,
you can do a search like so:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    ComboBox1: TComboBox;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure GatherFiles(Const Lines: TStrings; Const Dir,Match: String);
var
  Rec: TSearchRec;
  Found: Integer;
Begin
  // Add files
  Found:= FindFirst(Dir+'\'+Match, faAnyFile, Rec);
  While Found = 0 do
  begin
    If (Rec.Attr AND faDirectory) = 0 Then Lines.Add(Dir+'\'+Rec.Name);
    Found := FindNext(Rec);
  End;
  FindClose(Rec);
  // Find directories (Without match)
  Found:= FindFirst(Dir+'\*.*', faAnyFile, Rec);
  While Found = 0 do
  begin
    If ((Rec.Attr AND faDirectory)>0) AND
       (Rec.Name<>'.') AND
       (Rec.Name<>'..') Then GatherFiles(Lines,Dir+'\'+Rec.Name,Match);
    Found := FindNext(Rec);
  End;
  FindClose(Rec);
End;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ComboBox1.items.Clear;
  GatherFiles(ComboBox1.Items,'C:\somedir','*.db');
  If ComboBox1.Items.Count>0 Then
    ComboBox1.Text:= ComboBox1.Items[0];
  ShowMessage('Found '+IntToStr(ComboBox1.Items.Count)+' matching files.');
end;

end.

that would get them and put them in a combobox..
