The only way i see to make it is to Output the listing to a file

dir c:\ /ad /b /-p /o:gen > listing.txt

Then Reprocess the file with vba script or any other script to replace the  CRLF line terminator with the file separator you need for example :" ,"

This can be automated very easyly

If you need to do this for once, do this:

1. dump the out to a text file by appending  "> output.txt" to you dir command.
e.g. dir /b > output.txt

2. Open the file in MS word. Goto find and replace. Replace ^p with a blank/space.

If you need to do it repeatedly - thats another story.

It should carry out in a file, in only batch file, or vb script file.

Save this as LineDir.cmd or Whatever.cmd, and simply pass it the folder to list as first argument:
linedir C:\
@echo off

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

set Options=/ad /b /-p /o:gen

if "%~1"=="" (echo Syntax: %~nx0 ^<Folder^>&goto :eof)

for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir %Options% "%~1"') do set Line=!Line! %%a

set Line=%Line:~1%

echo.%Line%

Open in new window
