Sort list of files in directory

Hello,

I'm beginning in the ASP world...

I would like to sort (descending) list of files in directory.

Parameter is directory url.

How I can to do that with ASP not ASP.NET.

Thank you very much.

Use the File System Object to retrieve the files collection.
Something like:

==============
' Get the folder needed from a query string
' could be Request.Form or whatever

Folder = Request.QuerySt ring("Folder")

' Use the FSO to get the files collection

Set FileSystem = CreateObject("S cripting.FileSy stemObject")
Set DisplayFolder = FileSystem.GetF older(server.ma ppath(Folder))
Set DisplayFiles = DisplayFolder.F iles

' Display each file on a line in a web page

For Each FileName in Files
response.write FileName.Name & "<br>" & VbCrLf
Next
==============

The files are already sorted descending order, but you could load them
into an array and sort to your heart's content if you wish.
