I am using the following code to print all of the word documents .docx in a designated folder.
How should I change this code so that it prints in the alpha-numerical order that the files names appear in the folder?
Thanks in advance

Private Sub CommandButton21_Click()
   Dim sMyDir As String
   Dim sDocName As String
   ' The path to obtain the files.
   sMyDir = "\Folder Path"
   sDocName = Dir(sMyDir & "*.DOCX")
   While sDocName <> ""
      ' Print the file.
      Application.PrintOut FileName:=sMyDir & sDocName
      ' Get next file name.
      sDocName = Dir()
   Wend
End Sub

Hi,

pls try

Sub PrintFileNameList()

Dim FolderFiles() As Variant 
    smyDir = "\myDir\"
    tmp = Dir(smyDir & "*.docx")
    While tmp <> Empty
        fCount = fCount + 1
        ReDim Preserve FolderFiles(1 To fCount)
        ' declares the array variable again (size+1)
        FolderFiles(fCount) = tmp
        tmp = Dir()
    Wend
    Call BubbleSort(FolderFiles)

    For Each Item In FolderFiles
      Application.PrintOut Filename:=smyDir & sDocName
    Next
End Sub

Sub BubbleSort(MyArray() As Variant)
     
    First = LBound(MyArray)
    Last = UBound(MyArray)
    For i = First To Last - 1
        For j = i + 1 To Last
            If UCase(MyArray(i)) > UCase(MyArray(j)) Then
                Temp = MyArray(j)
                MyArray(j) = MyArray(i)
                MyArray(i) = Temp
            End If
        Next j
    Next i

End Sub

In Windows Explorer, sort the files into the required order by File Name and then select all of them. Right click on the first one and there should be an option to Print. This should Open, Print and Close the files in the order listed in Explorer.

Thanks
