Need to create a CSV / Excel file of file listing in a specified windows directory

A beginners question really: could someone point to any controls or code or suggestions on how I can read a list of files from a specified windows directory into a csv (or similar) file which I would then like to read into Excel?

Many thanks

Try something like...

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim myFile As String
Dim parDir As String
Dim parFile As String

parDir = "c:\"
parFile = Dir(parDir, vbNormal)
myFile = "c:\outputfile.txt"
Open myFile For Output As 1
   
While parFile <> vbNullString
    Print #1, parFile
    parFile = Dir
Wend

Close 1

End Sub

This will create a text file which can be read into Excel, Word etc etc.
