Does FSO FileCollection have a limit as far how many files can be processed ?

For example, when I go:

                                    For Each objFile in Folder.Files
                                          whatever
                                    Next

What if I have 100000 files ??
Also, may be there are more economical ( in terms of memory, performance ) ways to handle such situation ?

Thanks in advance

I don't know if there is a limit but I do know FSO is the slowest method of doing this.The fastest way would be to use API:
