    I'm using Word 2007. Once upon a time, I was able to go into the Open File dialog box, go to a folder, and print a list of the files in that folder. It was also possible to select a group of files, and print a list of just those.

    There no longer seems to be an option to print the file list. Is there a way to do it in Word 2007?

    Thanks.

    Perhaps that was in WordPerfect? I don't think Word has had that feature in any version for Windows.

    Try Karen's Directory Printer. This is a standalone utility that lets you print a list of files or save it to a text file; it is highly customizable, and it is *free*.

    Hi, Rita,

    Yes, you're probably thinking of WordPerfect -- which does allow you to print the file list. As Hans says, Word doesn't have that native ability (as far as I know).

    I'll be interested to check out Karen's Directory Printer. Sounds very useful!

    Hi Rita,

    If you have any use for a screen capture utility, Snagit does a great job of capturing a long list of files in Windows Explorer or Word's file dialog. It's relatively inexpensive (~50) and in my line of work I use it constantly for all sorts of things. Go to techsmith.com and check it out.

    Yes, it probably was WordPerfect. I still miss that program.

    I will check out everyone's suggestion.

    Thanks.
