Hi wordtool,

Use Lowfatspread's code and change the dir to use the parameters "/ad /b", so:

exec master.dbo.xp_cmdshell "dir c:\windows /ad /b"

exec master.dbo.xp_cmdshell "Dir C:\ /B"

use the /B "bare" parameter of the DIR command

e.g.

Insert into #temp
 (dataline)
exec master.dbo.xp_cmdshell "Dir C:\ /B"
