Extract all Files from a Zip but not any folders

The code below works and will extract all files and folders from a zipped file. If possible I would like it to only extract the files.

Function unZip()
 
Dim unZipToLoc As Variant
Dim zipFname As Variant
   
     unZipToLoc = "C:\Zipped"
     zipFname = DLookup("ZippedReportsName", "tDefaults")
     
Set oApp = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
 
     oApp.Namespace(unZipToLoc).CopyHere oApp.Namespace(zipFname).Items
     
End Function

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

it is not erroring out but it doesn't unzip any files.  There are four folders inside the zip before the text files so it looks like this:


ZippedAll.zip\scowebreports\reports\FB6122\2014068\  then the text files.  The last folder 2014068 changes daily.

Because you said "only files", I understood is as only the files in in the root folder.
In this case, it's better to unzip as normal (use your old code), and then add code to recursively move files from the subfolders to the root folder, and delete the subfolders after that.
