Dear Experts:

below macro, courtesy of an EE expert, lists all the paths of all files of a given directory in Column A of the current worksheet.

I  wonder whether somebody could help me to incorporate a folder picker in this code.

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

Regards, Andreas


Sub List_Path_Of_Files()
'List Files (entire path) from a given directory in Column A of current excel worksheet
'requires a folder picker to be perfect

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 = MyFolder & MyFile
    MyFile = Dir
Loop
MsgBox "Done. Column A lists all of the files of the given directory"
End Sub
