If you are working in VFP7/8, then you can see all properties and methods of the object oFSO = CREATEOBJECT("Scripting.FileSystemObject") as soon as you initiate it. Just type oFSO. to see the list of available options.

Windows Script Host reference, tuturial and help you may find in the file WSH.CHM somewhere on your PC.

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.

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?
