    I've been using this on my PC with no problems, I've now got a Mac and I can't seem to make it work on here. Any tips?

    Hi Ken. Very good code.

    It seems all the charm is in there:

    Set objFso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set objFiles = objFso.GetFolder(strDirectory).Files

    In my case I need not only to count files but also to process each individual file after getting that number of files. Using a For Next loop. How can I index each file to do that? is there any other attribute to use?
