By using Microsoft Scripting Runtime, you can easily get access to folders and files in folders.

Here is a sample which shows the name of each file in the folder C:\.

Dim objFSO As Scripting.FileSystemObject
Dim objFolder As Folder
Dim objFile As File
Set objFSO = New Scripting.FileSystemObject
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("C:\")
For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
    MsgBox objFile.Name
Next

Alternately, if you don't want to specify a reference to the "Microsoft Scripting Runtime" DLL, you can use the following:

Dim objFSO As Object
Dim objFolder As Object
Dim objFile As Object
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("C:\")
For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
    MsgBox objFile.Name
Next


I'll bet this will work for you.

Cheers
:-)
