Here is an alternate way using Word and another free utility...

by CaptBilly1Eye In reply to text in folders

I use Excel 2002 and 2003 so I am unsure if you can get the previous utility to work in 2007.

Here's another free utility that should work as well. It is a stand-alone program (no install needed) that quickly and easily creates a text file list of any folder's contents:

note: be sure to adjust the character limit on the 'Display' tab so that names are not truncated.


Let me know what works for you.
