Hi,

I have the task of creating an export tool - where a list of files are gathered and zipped up and placed into a folder of the user's choosing. So far I have gathered a list of files and put them in a list box for the user to select which ones they want to zip. What I want to know is how do I now obtain the file list (the displayed objects are just strings); do I need to create FileSystemObjects or something like that? I just don't know where to start. I'm not looking for anyone to write code for me, just to advise me what I need to do to get started.

Any help or suggestions appreciated.

Yes, you will have to use the file system object. First check if a file exist, if not create it etc. Just the fact that you did not ask for code, but were willing to do it yourself, herewith all the code you need from an app I did a while ago.
