I am a bit confused on how to come up with a macro that lists the folders in a directory

Directory: Q:\Deburr issue\WT Review\Ship 0008

There are also some .zip files in this directory, but i just want to list the folders.

Thanks,

Brandon

Try this:
Sub PlainFolderListing()
   Dim fso As FileSystemObject, fdrSelected, fdrSub, filTemp
   Dim strFilePath As String, rngOutput As Range
   
   ' change folder as required
   strFilePath = "Q:\Deburr issue\WT Review\Ship 0008"
   
   ' change list destination as required
   Set rngOutput = ActiveSheet.Range("A1")
   
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set fdrSelected = fso.GetFolder(strFilePath)
   For Each fdrSub In fdrSelected.SubFolders
      rngOutput.value = fdrSub.Path
      Set rngOutput = rngOutput.Offset(1)
   Next fdrSub
   Set fso = Nothing

End Sub
