    Question File list into temp db or an array?

    Hi,
    I need to be able to view a list of files (could be large number!) on a web page and have been considering using the filesystemobject just to create an array. However their maybe a large number of files and they may need to be sorted!
    Anyone have some suggestions?
    Regards

    Here is the problem that you might run into depending on how you want to sort. I did something similar creating an image gallery using FSO, but I wanted to sort based on date modified. FSO cannot sort by this, so I had to create a recordset to do the sorting.

    I don't think FSO will have a problem with a large number of files, but why not give it a shot and see what happens.
