    Print File List

    A useful way to print a file list is to display it in Outlook and then print in the layout you wish. Works fine.
    What I want to do is take this a step further by printing to file and then opening the .prn file and converting it to something I can edit, like a spreadsheet.
    Does anyone know of an app that will read/convert a .prn file (not a Lotus space delimited file)?
    Unless there is a converter I do not have installed, Excel won't do it. I've also tried TextPad.
    Any ideas?

    Check out Directory Printer from Karen's Power Tools. It can print a file list to the printer, or save it to disk as a text file or tab-delimited text file.

    The underlined Karen's Power Tools in Hans' post is a link which should open another browser window.

    Hi Ross,

    You might also like to check out the utility created by our very own Jefferson Scher in <post#=277015>post 277015</post#>. It prompts you to nominate the folders & file attributes you want, then puts them straight into an Excel spreadsheet.

    Cheers
