This code will recursively parse a directory defined by an path parameter.

Function RecurseFolderList(foldername)

    Dim fso, f, fc, fj, f1

    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set f = fso.GetFolder(foldername)
    Set fc = f.Subfolders
    Set fj = f.Files

    'For each subfolder in the Folder
    For Each f1 In fc
        'Do something with the Folder Name
        debug.print f1
        'Then recurse this function with the sub
        '-folder to get any sub-folders
        RecurseFolderList(f1)
    Next    
   
    'For each folder check for any files
    For Each f1 In fj
        debug.print f1
    Next

End Function

But I don't know how to stop the recursive function when a SubDirectorie/file is found

Could any can tell me how to do?

Thanks a lot!

   Set f = fso.GetFolder(foldername)
   Set fc = f.Subfolders
   Set fj = f.Files

   'For each subfolder in the Folder
   For Each f1 In fc
       'Do something with the Folder Name
       debug.print f1
       if f1 = "what you are looking for" then
           pblnfound = true
       else
           'Then recurse this function with the sub
           '-folder to get any sub-folders
           RecurseFolderList(f1, pblnfound)
       endif
       if pblnfound then exit for

   'For each folder check for any files
   For Each f1 In fj
       debug.print f1
   Next

End Function
