Dear Experts:

the following macro lists all files from a given directory in Column A of the current excel worksheet.

Just the file names are listed. How is the code to be re-written if I would like to have the whole path listed?

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas


Sub List_Files()
'List Files from a given directory in Column A of current excel worksheet
Dim MyFolder As String
Dim MyFile As String
Dim a As Integer
MyFolder = "C:\Test\" ' <-- Change to your folder
MyFile = Dir(MyFolder & "*.*")
a = 0
Do While MyFile <> ""
    a = a + 1
    Cells(a, 1).Value = MyFile
    MyFile = Dir
Loop
MsgBox "Done."
End Sub
