    List of zip file names (Word 203/Windows XP)

    I have approximately 500 zip files each containing approximately 10 files each (.dwg, csv and xls files). I need to create an MS Word 2003 document that contains all of the file names contained within all of zip files. The zip files are contained on our network in a directory.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    This is less easy than I thought at first. Neither the old Dir command, nor the newer FileSystemObject appear to be able to read the contents of compressed folders (zip files), so you'll either need to use the WinZip command line add-on (free if you have a valid license of WinZip Pro), or perhaps some Windows API functions, but I cannot help you with that.

    WinRAR has a report facility that allows you to create an HTM file of the contents of the archive. Unfortunately you would have to do each ZIP file individually. There is a command line option to do this with the RAR.EXE program included in WinRAR but it only appears to work for archives of type RAR.
