Scanning for new files added to directory
I'd like to write a program that can monitor a download directory and
identify the addition of new files added. Could someone give a
suggestion as to how this could be accomplished.

Hello - One of the templates I've created in Excel is

size as transmitting the file becomes costly.
Any idea what might be causing this? The file is 32 rows
by 13 columns with alternating grey shading. 26 cells are
locked and the file has protection. Some cells have been

I have a folder in Excel which contains about 500 files

I am currently tying to set up an Excel spreadsheet and
would like to copy just the file names into the
spreadsheet - not the actual file.
I have been trying to copy and paste, just the file titles
and had no luck, as excel only wants to copy the file.
In Excel you can "Copy" and "Paste Special" if you want to
just copy the values, and I wondered whether you could do

I want to save a file on a CD. When I try, I'm told it is not a legal
operation ( or something to that effect) and that I must get permission from
the 'Administrator". Who would that be??
If you're using File|SaveAs (or its xl2007+ equivalent), then you'll want to
make sure that the drive you're using allows you to use it this way.
One of my drives has a DLA (Direct Line Access???). This allows this drive to
be used the way file|SaveAs would need.
The other doesn't allow this.
In any event, I wouldn't do this. I think it'll cause more tro...is there a 3rd party utility to edit my *.nick file?

brilliant contribution, works really well. the only issue i have is the full

the size of the screen to view full path.
Is there a way to just get the listbox to display the filename to the user
but to also keep the filename and path hidden so that the double click
hyperlink still works to open the documents??

Is there any way to insert data from one excel file into another without
doing copy and pasting? I need to automate the process of inserting data but
I cannot use copy-paste, because it puts data on a clipboard, and my Excel

is copying data into clipboard, and another instance is pasting it at the
same time, it will paste incorrect data.

Thanks for help from Tom and JE.
My key concern is that: could I, by any means, keep links betwen file

I tried xlw. The problem is that: I can not change the path of th
saved files. So I can not send these files to someone else to open i
with my xlw file.
If it can reach that: say, I send the saved workbooks and the xlw fil
together to another computer, and then when another user opens that xl
file, all the workbooks will open automatically.

You'll need to change the way the links work, so that they'll apply 'relative' Paths, instead of the usual 'absolute' paths. To see
how to do this, check out the solution I've posted at:
