This seems to be very simple... Try this:

Use FileSystemObject to get Files and Folder information...
(Add a reference to Microsoft Scripting runtime an declare it as follows:
Dim FSO As New FileSystemObject)

Then build an array and sort it using a generic array sort routine like this...

Public Sub BubbleSort(ByRef lngArray() As Long)
    Dim iOuter As Long
    Dim iInner As Long
    Dim iLBound As Long
    Dim iUBound As Long
    Dim iTemp As Long
   
    iLBound = LBound(lngArray)
    iUBound = UBound(lngArray)
   
    'Which bubbling pass
    For iOuter = iLBound To iUBound - 1
        'Which comparison
        For iInner = iLBound To iUBound - iOuter - 1
       
            'Compare this item to the next item
            If lngArray(iInner) > lngArray(iInner + 1) Then
                'Swap
                iTemp = lngArray(iInner)
                lngArray(iInner) = lngArray(iInner + 1)
                lngArray(iInner + 1) = iTemp
            End If
           
        Next iInner
    Next iOuter
End Sub

This could help!

Folder 'software' was last modified on Friday, April 16, 2004 at 1:23:25 PM

I need the files also

this global dir has
 
2644 folders
39224 files

so I cant make a text file with all this info, I need a script that will
go through the dir global and output this info

d:\global\dirx\ ( list all files with the date and time last accessed )

Here is an example of how to do this.

http://www.roubaixinteractive.com/PlayGround/FSO/Sort_Folder_Contents.asp?orderBy=DESC&sortBy=Size

in this case, the programmer uses a ADO Recordset object for sorting (wich is not a bad idea) but if you don't want to use ADO, you may use this bubblesort function as I told you before.

Good Luck!
