_FileListToArray

4 posts in this topic

ok i am using _FileListToArray to make an array of all files in a certain folder. i am wondering, is there a way to make _FileListToArray recognize the files in subfolders of the main folder?

i only want to list the files to the array, not the folders.

i just want _FileListToArray to write all files, and files contained in subfolders of the main folder.

hmm. :)

You could do this with some looping and _FileListToArray, but I think it would be easier to just use a File Search UDF, like this one:

You need to put it in a recursive function (one that calls itself). If you are not ready to code that yourself, there are many examples posted on the forum.

Another option is to just run "DIR C:\Target\*.* /S /B > FileList.txt" and then parse the file (this actually turns out to be faster than many scripted functions).

You could also use my FolderList to array. Then use that array to run against _FileListToArray()

In the left menu, Click Code>>My Extra UDFs>>Folder. It is right near the bottom or you can just download the whole file by clicking Download at the bottom of the page.

Edit: You can also see how I used it here.
