Try this - just modify the path and output range in the first sub as required:

Sub TestListFoldersAndFiles()

   FolderListing "C:\test", Range("A1")

End Sub

Sub FolderListing(strFilepath As String, ByRef rngOutput As Range)

   Dim fso As Object, fdrSelected, fdrSub, filTemp

   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

   Set fdrSelected = fso.GetFolder(strFilepath)

   With rngOutput

      .Value = fdrSelected.Path & " (" & fdrSelected.Files.Count & ")"

      .Font.Bold = True

   End With

   For Each filTemp In fdrSelected.Files

      Set rngOutput = rngOutput.Offset(1)

      rngOutput.Value = filTemp.Name

      rngOutput.Offset(, 1).Value = filTemp.Size

      rngOutput.Offset(, 2).Value = filTemp.DateLastModified

   Next filTemp

   Set rngOutput = rngOutput.Offset(2)

   For Each fdrSub In fdrSelected.SubFolders

      FolderListing fdrSub.Path, rngOutput

   Next fdrSub

   Set fso = Nothing

End Sub

gbecerra,Glad to see you got an answer!You might also want to have a look at this PAQ: that comment, I have code that will enumerate the files in a directory, but allow you at runtime to browse to find the directory you want enumerated, and also allow you to indicate whether or not to traverse the subfolders and descendants.Patrick
