    My boss wants me to take all the files from cd's and make a database. However there are ALOT of files. Is there a rogram out there that allows me to select groups of files and be able to copy and paste the information (date, size, filename) to excel, access, etc? thanks

    Well if it were me, I'd go to the dos prompt

    c:
    cd \
    dir d:\ /s > c:\filelist.txt

    Then import the data (c:\filelist.txt) into excel or access.
