Hi All

I have a script (i have attached as a .txt file) this script reports on last modified date of folders including all sub folders and files.

I need to modify it if possible to i have two versions

Version 1 (this is what i need)

Firstly i would like to change it so it only goes down 1 level of subfolder, for example i will run this on "E:\Users" folder and i only want to it to report on the level directly below that which are my users individual folders,

Version 2 ( this one is just a nice to have and not critical)

I would like the same script to report on all subfolders but not any files.

Thanks

Nick

Try this code.  I have added two new parameters to your ReportFiles() function which accept a boolean value (True or False) as to whether you want Folders only or not and a numeric value nLevels which allow you to state how many levels you want to go down. report-file-properties.asp.txt

Sorry, you need to add the Attribute constants to the top of the code... only FileAttrDirectory  is being used through.  use this version...

Line 76 is a blank line (unless you have modified the file).  HOw are you running it?  In an asp website?

Yeah will do that now cheers, if you do get a spare 5 mins to stop it doing files and just reporting folders that would be a bonus, no worries if not though as this has allowed me to get on.

Thankss again
