List All Filenames in Directory

The following code is a subroutine that will get the names of all the files that are present in a directory path:

Sub List_All_The_Files_Within_Path()

Dim Row_No As Integer
Dim No_Of_Files As Integer
Dim kk25 As Integer
Dim File_Path As String

File_Path = "C:My Documents"

Row_No = 36

'Lists all the files in the current directory

With Application.FileSearch
.LookIn = File_Path
.Filename = "*.*"
.SearchSubFolders = False

    No_Of_Files = .FoundFiles.Count

    For kk25 = 1 To No_Of_Files
       Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(kk25 + 5, 15).Value = .FoundFiles(kk25)

    Next kk25

End With

End Sub

It will write the filenames to Sheet1 in column O – starting at row 36
