Scanning Multiple Levels of a Directory

Scanning Multiple Levels of a Directory

Question:
I have been trying to right a routine to recurs sub directories and scan for files. Then the light came on!!! What is the call to the windows API that searchs directories?

Answer:
You actually don’t have to use the API to do this. The Dir function inVisual Basic can return the files or directories in a directory. You canthen check each file in the directory for whatever you are looking for.
