I have an folder FileRepo: It contains files of the format.
AAAAK5389F1_FORM16A_2010-11_Q1.pdf
AAAAK5389F1_FORM16A_2010-11_Q2.pdf
AAAAK5389F1_FORM16A_2010-11_Q3.pdf
AAAAK5389F1_FORM16A_2010-11_Q4.pdf
AAAAK5389F2_FORM16A_2010-11_Q1.pdf
AAAAK5389F2_FORM16A_2010-11_Q2.pdf
AAAAK5389F2_FORM16A_2010-11_Q3.pdf
AAAAK5389F2_FORM16A_2010-11_Q4.pdf

The user enters the token no. which is common for file.ex. AAAAK5389F1
I want when the user enters this token no. in txttoken
The gridview should be filled with all files containing this token no. i.e
AAAAK5389F1_FORM16A_2010-11_Q1.pdf
AAAAK5389F1_FORM16A_2010-11_Q2.pdf
AAAAK5389F1_FORM16A_2010-11_Q3.pdf

            var dt = new DataTable();
            dt.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string));

            Directory.GetFiles("YourFolderPath", "AAAAK5389F1*.*")
                .ToList()
                .ForEach(s =>
                             {
                                 var dr = dt.NewRow();
                                 dr.SetField<string>("Name", s.Substring(s.LastIndexOf('\\') + 1));

                                 dt.Rows.Add(dr);
                             });

            if(dt.Rows.Count>0)
            {
                GridView1.DataSource=dt;
                GridView1.DataBind();                
            }

Files is the folder where all files are kept.
Its giving System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\Files'.

  protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        var dt = new DataTable();
        dt.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string));

        Directory.GetFiles("Files",TextBox1.Text.Trim()+"*.pdf")
            .ToList()
            .ForEach(s =>
            {
                var dr = dt.NewRow();
                dr.SetField<string>("Name", s.Substring(s.LastIndexOf('\\') + 1));

                dt.Rows.Add(dr);
            });

        if (dt.Rows.Count > 0)
        {
            GridView1.DataSource = dt;
            GridView1.DataBind();
        }

    }
