Hi,
I have the path of a directory in a CString variable called sNewFolder.
I need to find the total number of files in this directory.

This should do it
      CFileFind ff;
      CString s(sNewFolder);
      s += "*.*";   //may need \\*.*   depends on contents of sNewFolder
      int i = 0;
      bool bWorking = ff.FindFile(s, 0);
      while(bWorking)
      {
            if(!ff.IsDots() && !ff.IsDirectory())      
                  i++;
            bWorking = ff.FindNextFile();
      }
      ff.Close();
      s.Format("Found %d files", i);
      AfxMessageBox(s);
