This is a carry one from - http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Q_20801502.html - what I had not though about was I have many subdirectories under the main and each have some tif files that get added. What I would like to make the example given to me http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Q_20801502.html here auto look in all the subdirectories as the names of them will change or be added to. So I just select the mail directory and it will go through it and all subdirectories and take the file extensions off. Any and all files under the main directory will be *.tif files.
