vbscript search for all files given the files extension

I'm trying to create a vbscript to search for all files given the files extension but got bit stuck when im trying to create a sub function to search for the files in  the subfolders.

I wanted to create a sub function with a loop inside so it continue on to find the subfolders after it finish scanning the targeted folder
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objOut = objFSO.CreateTextFile ("C:\scanreport.txt")
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("c:\backup")
Set colFiles = objFolder.Files
 
For Each objFile in colFiles
  If LCase(Right(objFile.Name, 3)) = "txt" Then 
		objOut.Write objFile.Name
		objOut.Write objFile.Path
		objOut.WriteLine
  End If
Next
 
objOut.Close
wscript.Quit

Open in new window

ListTheFiles objFolder, objOut

objOut.Close
Set objOut = Nothing
Set objFolder = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing

Sub ListTheFiles(UseFolder, UseTS)

    Dim objSF, objFile

    For Each objFile In UseFolder.Files
        If LCase(Right(objFile.Name, 3)) = "txt" Then objOut.WriteLine objFile.Path
    Next

    For Each objSF In UseFolder.SubFolders
