Hello,

Using ASP.NET I want to count the number of files in a folder.

I've got this so far....(I'm moving email file from one folder to another....I would like to count the remaining files)
<%@ Import Namespace="System.IO" %>
<%@ Import namespace="System.Collections" %>
For Each s in Directory.GetFiles(sourcePath, "*.eml")
          File.Move(sourcePathFileName, destinationPathFileName)
Next

Thanks,

---- Mike

orbulat is absolutely correct, just a small insertion..

        Label1.Text = Directory.GetFiles(sourcePath, "*.eml").Length

Assumed a label exist and assigning the return value to label.text

Credit goes to orbulat.
