This sample shows how to "role your own" directory/file list.

It uses the Shell() function to run a DOS DIR command and pipe it to a text file. Then imports the text file into a table. It does it first with the Directories under a drive and then with the file under the directory.

See the code behind the form for details.

Also check out the Modules for other applications of this technique.
