I have this code which returns the properties of files in a directory, does anyone know how to amend this to read files in sub directories?

Sub main()

Dim swApp As Object
Sub main()
Dim Part As SldWorks.ModelDoc2
Dim PartNumber As String
    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set a = fs.CreateTextFile("C:\File.csv", True)

    FileName = Dir("C:\Temp\*.SLDPRT")
    Visibility = swApp.DocumentVisible(False, swDocPART)
    a.writeline ("Part Number" & "," & "Description")

    Do While FileName <> ""
        Set Part = swApp.OpenDoc("C:\Temp\" & FileName, swDocPART)
        Description = Part.GetCustomInfoValue("", "DESCRIPTION")
        PartNumber = Part.GetCustomInfoValue("", "Part_No.")
        a.writeline (PartNumber & "," & Description)
        swApp.CloseDoc FileName
        FileName = Dir
    Loop

    Visibility = swApp.DocumentVisible(True, swDocPART)

End Sub

Option Explicit
Dim strFolderToSearch, objFSO, objRootFolder, objFolder, colSubfolders, strOutput

strFolderToSearch = "C:\Windows\"

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objRootFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strFolderToSearch)
Set colSubfolders = objRootFolder.SubFolders

For Each objFolder in colSubfolders
     strOutput = strOutput & objFolder.name
     strOutput = strOutput &  vbCrLf
Next

MsgBox strOutput

your code should go in between for loop...


For Each objFolder in colSubfolders
     strOutput = strOutput & objFolder.name
     strOutput = strOutput &  vbCrLf
Next
