Folders, Subfolders & Files - Freeware Program

This is my second attempt to convert an Excel application into a Visual Basic program. About a year ago I created a freeware Units Converter program using Visual Studio 2010. This time, I transformed my Folder, Subfolders & Files Excel application into a stand-alone .exe using the old Visual Basic 6.0 language. The advantage of using the “old” Visual Basic 6.0 was the fact that the Visual Basic code was quite similar to my original VBA code.

So, with this small utility you will be able to create a list of all folders, subfolders and files of a folder that you have selected. The application creates a new Excel workbook and writes the necessary names, paths and hyperlinks.

How to use it

The short video below demonstrates the application in use.

The program was written in Visual Basic 6.0. It has been successfully tested under the environment of Windows 7 + Office 2010, Windows XP + Office 2010 and Windows XP + Office 2003.
