Here's a quick example. Just change ext to "*.wrg".

Form1:
-----------------
Option Explicit
Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim path As String
    Dim ext As String
    Dim file As String
    path = App.path
    If (Right$(path, 1) <> "\") Then
        path = path & "\"
    End If
    ext = "*.HTM"
    file = Dir(path & ext, vbNormal)
    Do Until file = vbNullString
        Debug.Print file
        file = Dir
    Loop
End Sub
