search for file and create list in CSV using command prompt

How do I find all the files with a "9" in the filename in a folder and its sub-folders, with executing a command from cmd and then export that to a csv file as i tried using > c:\filelist.csv but this doesn't put a comma after each filename in the list.

The command i tried is:

dir /a-d /b C:\*_9_*.txt>filelist.csv

export it to txt, open excel, and excl will ask you what to do with it, all you need to do is specify your required spacing.

Worked for me recently.

I would use c:\dir /a /s *9* > c:\fileswith9.txt

then import it into excel as above.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick response, but that file will then be used by an automated process so I will not have the chance to open and edit the file.

if i execute the dir command above "c:\dir /a /s *9* > c:\fileswith9.txt" it gives me the following out put, I just want a list of the filenames of the file with a specific number in this case i was using 9.

You can use dir /a/s/b *9*.* > c:\9.txt

I have just done this and got the following output - it will always publish the path along with the file I think
