I understand the FileSearch function is no longer available in A2007. Can anyone help me modify my code (created in 2003) to adapt this to work in 2007?
Function ImportFileDetails()
DoCmd.SetWarnings False

Dim fs, i, temp As Variant
Dim dbs As Database
Dim rst As Recordset
Dim sql As Variant
Dim msoSortByFileName As Variant
Dim msoSortOrderAscending As Variant


Set dbs = CurrentDb
Set fs = Application.FileSearch


sql = "D:\Doc Control\ISO\Doc Control\Level 3 QWI\" '(i.e. c:\")
On Error Resume Next
On Error GoTo 0
Set rst = dbs.OpenRecordset("tblDocListing")

With fs
    .NewSearch
    .LookIn = sql
    .SearchSubFolders = False
    .Filename = "*.*"
    If .Execute(SortBy:=msoSortByFileName, _
            SortOrder:=msoSortOrderAscending) > 0 Then
            'MsgBox "There were " & .FoundFiles.Count & _
            " file(s) found."
        For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
            rst.AddNew
            rst!DocFilePath = Left(.FoundFiles(i), InStrRev(.FoundFiles(i), "\"))
            rst!DocFileName = Mid(.FoundFiles(i), InStrRev(.FoundFiles(i), "\") + 1)
            rst!DocFileSize = FileLen(.FoundFiles(i))
            rst!DocFileModified = FileDateTime(.FoundFiles(i))
                   rst.Update
            'MsgBox .FoundFiles(i)
        Next i
    Else
        MsgBox "There were no files found."
    End If
End With
rst.Close

dbs.Close
DoCmd.SetWarnings True
End Function
