Is it possible to fill a dropdown combobox with directory folders?  I have a program that creates a set of folders within the app.path and the user needs to select a directory folder.

The following code will add all of the directories in SearchPath (set this to whatever directory you want, such as app.path) into a combo box named Combo1.

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim CurrentDirectory
Dim SearchPath

SearchPath = "c:\"
CurrentDirectory = Dir(SearchPath, vbDirectory)

Do While CurrentDirectory <> ""
   If CurrentDirectory <> "." And CurrentDirectory <> ".." Then
      If (GetAttr(SearchPath & CurrentDirectory) And vbDirectory) = vbDirectory Then
         Combo1.AddItem CurrentDirectory
      End If
   End If
   CurrentDirectory = Dir
Loop

End Sub

Hope this helps,
Phil
