Extracting all Msgbox lines from the project/projectgroup

Hello,

I have a sizable project/project group (with many forms,modules,usercontrols)....What I need to do is extract all the Msgbox statements from all the source componenets of this project/projectgroup and write to a notepad file.

How can I do this?

Thanks
Kamur

Copy all the source code files into a single directory

Use the FileSystemObject to open a file called Results.txt

For each file in the directory:
    Use the FileSystemObject to open the file
    For each line in the file:
        If InStr("Msgbox") then
            Output this line to Results.txt, followed by a vbCrLf
        End if
    Next
Next
