Loop thru a directory put filenames in a combobox vb6

I have a program where a homeowner can get-track bids on different home repair-improvements
The homowner can type a new project name  into a combo box(cboBids) and new Directory is created
I want to put all the directory names in a combobox on form load
The homeowners directory is created when entered into textboxes
Typical Paths
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\RoofCalculator\Williams 1247 RiverBend rd\Painting Bids
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\RoofCalculator\Williams 1247 RiverBend rd\Roofing Bids
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\RoofCalculator\Williams 1247 RiverBend rd\Bathroom Remodle Bids
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\RoofCalculator\Williams 1247 RiverBend rd\New Fence Bids
The last part
Example:
With Me.cboBids
.AddItem "paintingBids"
.AddItem "Roofing Bids"
.AddItem "Bathroom Remodle Bids"
.AddItem "New Fence Bids"
End With
How can this be done ?

Use either the Dir() function or the FileSystemObject.

' Add a reference to the Microsoft Scripting Runtime.
Dim fso As New FileSystemObject
Dim f As Folder
  
For Each f  In fso.GetFolder("<yourFolderPath>").SubFolders
  Debug.Print f.Name
Next f
Set fso = Nothing

Thanks ste5an
Is there a way without using fso ?

mstrOwnerFolder holds this:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Documents\RoofCalculator\Williams 1247 RiverBend rd
tried this to no avail:

Sub AddFoldersToCbo()
Dim MyFile, MyPath, MyName
MyPath = mstrOwnerFolder  ' Set the path.
MyName = Dir(MyPath, vbDirectory)   ' Retrieve the first entry.
Do While MyName <> ""
      If MyPath = vbDirectory Then
        Debug.Print MyName
   End If
   MyName = Dir
Loop
End Sub

Try this:

Note the additions: the GetAttr() function and the last backslash in root path.

   Dim MyFile, MyPath, MyName
   MyPath = "c:\temp\"                 'Set the path (must append the last backslash "\")
   MyName = Dir(MyPath, vbDirectory)   'Retrieve the first entry.
   Do While MyName <> ""
      If (GetAttr(MyPath & MyName) And vbDirectory) Then
         If (MyName <> ".") And (MyName <> "..") Then
            Debug.Print MyName
         End If
      End If
      MyName = Dir()
   Loop

Just ensure to include double quotes to the root path as it contains spaces, if you haven't done so.
