Thanks Yuri,

That works like a charm. The Scripting stuff is entirely new and mysterious to me (I'm a newbie, converting over from FXP2.6), and so I see I have some learning to do. I have looked it up and see it is a Windows capability interfaced into VFP. It is not documented in the VFP manuals. If you have any recommendation for where I should find documentation info, I would be appreciative.

Thanks again,

BillvV

I know it can be done using LLF functions (copy directory to text file, read text file into an array), but I'm looking for a more convenient method. Is there one?
