Can anyone tell me how to export a list of file names from windows explorer into an excel spreadsheet?

ie. I have a directory of drawing files in a windows explorer window, and I want to export them into excel to create a drawing registry and put information in cells next to the drawing numbers.

Thanks

You could have a look at some of these click here=

One I have used for a similar task in the past is this click here

You can save the list as a .csv file and then open it in Excel. I found that I had to do some tweaking when I got it into Excel (basically to make it look nice!), but it served the purpose!

HTH.

Useful little program that. Now resident on my machine as an easy way of getting file printouts!

Thanks

I can't claim credit for discovering it - saw it recommended on these pages a long time ago! (and apologies for not being able to remember who to give the credit to!).
