Does anyone know if it is possible to create a text file that shows the names of files in a folder.

A couple of tips to get a neater list by using switches for the DOS dir command. You can combine these too: dir /os /b /s > files.txt

From the DOS box type:

To list file names only: Dir /b > files.txt

To sort in order of Date: dir /od >files.txt

To sort in order of Name: dir /on >files.txt

To sort in order of Size: dir /os >files.txt

To include subdirectories dir /s >files.txt

If you want a more sophisticated and versatile final product,then Directory Lister[freeware]is an excellent little program for this.

Thanks for that, my Polish is not too good either.

Open the Zip file and extract the program and html help files into a suitable directory. Add a shortcut to JDirPrinter.exe on your Program menu (in Accesories for example).

Run the program from the shortcut and choose the folder that you want to list. Select from the various options, and click start. Help will open the html file in your browser.

The directory listing will be displayed in Notepad, from where you can cut and paste into a WordProcessor. Select a monospaced font like Courier to align the columns of text neatly.
