    I have several CD's on which there are several thousand file names of JPEG
    files. I would like to import the file names (or even the file names in one
    field and the JPEG image in another field) so that I can organize the files
    in one database.

    I know that Outlook allows you to print out a directory. Is there a way to
    "print" out the directory from Outlook so that it is in a strung-text format
    and these files can be imported into an Access database? Your assistance is
    greatly appreciated!

    loop through the directories; and get a list of files and folders.

    if you had a real-mans database like SQL Server; you could call
    xp_cmdshell in order to push the results into a table; it's about 100
    times more efficient than doing it in an obsolete MDB file.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
