    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.
