VBSCRIPT List ALL Subfolders and Files From a Path

I've got a script that echos this information, and from there I wanted to output this to an excel file so that it would be somewhat discernable.

I as see it it will output:

subFolder     file    dateLastModified
                      file    dateLastModified
                      file    dateLastModified
subfolder      file    dateLastModified
                      file    dateLastModified etc.

I've entered Excel Output lines everywhere there was an WscriptEcho statement, and I realize that I need a counter statement to increment to the next line in the excel document. I've attempted several combinations but it's eluded me thus far.

Thanks,

JB

I typically do this by first creating a CSV file from the script you already have, that goes pretty easy, and then Excel can directly open up the CSV.

It can be done the way you are attempting, just a bit more complicated.

Why are you referencing objExcelOutput.Sheets(2), rather than (1) someplaces?

As far as the counter, you can just add 1 to that inside the two FOR loops, either before or after the adding of the file/directory to the excel row.

Yeah.... that's what's known as a typo magnified by cut & paste, which is why it appeared that my placement of counter wasn't working correctly.

Working fine now,

Thanks BP
