This should compose a list for you

Dim FileName as string
Dim f as Integer
f = Freefile
Open "MyMidiList.txt" for output as #f
FileName = Dir$("C:\music directory\*.mid")
Do Until FileName = ""
Print #f, FileName
FileName = Dir$()
Close #f

You don't need a script to do this.

Just go to a DOS prompt and type the following once you move to the C:\music directory

C:\music>dir > text.txt

This will send the output of typing the dir command straight into a text file that it drops on the root of the C: drive.
You can then open it in notepad and edit.
>>  Just go to a DOS prompt and type the following

Why type it when you can just press a button instead?

Also if you are in the music directory and specify just a filename without a path,it will put it in the Music directory and not the root of C:
Also,you need to specify the /b switch to get just the filenames.
Gee did you run my post through the spellchecker as well to make sure I don't have any mistakes with my spelling? You should be thourough you know.
"thourough" should be "thorough"
Word spellchecker set to English(United Kingdom) prefers 'thorough' to 'thourough'.
