Hi, How about this....

<%
dim fs,fo,x
set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set fo=fs.GetFolder(Server.MapPath(".") & "\..\Your Folder\")
%>
<select name="FileList">
<%
 
for each x in fo.files
  Response.write("<option value=" & CHR(32) & x.name & CHR(32) & ">" & x.name & "</option>")
next
 
set fo=nothing
set fs=nothing
%></select>
