GetAttrDescr - The attributes of a file in a readable format

' The attributes of a file in a readable format.
' It works also with open files, raises an error if the file doesn't exist.

Function GetAttrDescr(filename As String) As String
    Dim result As String, attr As Long

    ' get file attributes as a bit-coded field
    attr = GetAttr(filename)

    ' GetAttr also works with directories
    If attr And vbDirectory Then result = result & " Directory"
    If attr And vbReadOnly Then result = result & " ReadOnly"
    If attr And vbHidden Then result = result & " Hidden"
    If attr And vbSystem Then result = result & " System"
    If attr And vbArchive Then result = result & " Archive"

    ' discard the first space
    GetAttrDescr = Mid$(result, 2)
End Function
