I want to loop through all files in a folder one by one....

I'm trying to use code in excel spreadsheets that includes

Dim TestFile As New FileSystemObject

and getting the error:

User-defined type not defined.....

I am using Excel 1997.....Is this not available in this version?

Is there any other way to go about this?
