One variation I tried is:

runwait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'dir '\\Jims-notebook\my documents'', "", @SW_HIDE)

I have had no success getting this to work... any ideas greatly appreciated... Jim

Most of the time the My Documents folder, unless it's shared the way you show it, is going to have a different path to it than how you have it shown.

It's commonly "\\Jims-notebook\C$\Documents and Settings<username>\My Documents" or "\\Jims-notebook\C$\Users\<username>\Documents" depending upon what version of Windows you're connecting to.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Also . . . . by using @SW_HIDE you are not going to see much!
