List all files into a document - DOS / Win

I have created a large data base of .wav files. The drive directory file displays the sequence of folders Music/Catagory/Artist/AlbumTitle/Song Titles.

Is there any way to convert the 'directory file' into a .xls or .doc file?

Do you mean that you you like to get a listing of all files into a document?

Try something like

dir /s /b >> Listing.txt

This produces a text file which you could load into either Word or Excel. Use

dir /?

to see what the flags /s and /b do ...

OK I'll tell you

/s - recurse into subdirectories
/b - basic/bare output, just file names

ut do the /? option because there are other useful options to.

Thanks, worked like a charm!
It has been a long time since I used DOS, but this certainly demonstrates, DO NOT FORGET THE BASICS....
