Create A List Of Contents

Question: Create A List Of Contents

I recently created a data c.d. with over 100 files on it .Would anyone know how I could create a List of Contents? I have tried copy function in "detail view" and this works, but I can't paste contents into Excel, "new letter", Microsoft Word , Notepad, Word pad. I was successful in doing a print screen ,this would require several prints.
The CD is a 700MB CD-RW and I used Adaptec software , the "add contents" to cover did not work. (I doubt you could read 100+ lines) . Ideally 1 full sheet of paper that I could fold and place inside, would be o.k .

Is there any convenient way to get a list of a directory's contents, the file and subdirectory names? Dir doesn't return sub-directory names and mis-reports file-names that have non-ansi characters in them. The only way I've been able to do this is with a very slow keyboard macro

Answer:list directory contents

Not sure what is going on with your computer but dir shows subfolder by name

dir shows files and subfolders by name
dir *. /s shows just subfolders by name
dir /s show subfolders and files by name

You are right dir does not like special characters which is when I use explorer to list contents.

I was wondering what would be the best way to store the contents of a list box, so that I can reopen it at runtime and have the data imported back into the list box?

Answer:vb - storing contents of a list box

what im trying to do is to make a program that is like a shortcut for other programs.

you point the program to the directory for an exe file, then, stores a brief description of the program in the list. Then click on the item in the list then click on "run selected program"

Here is specifically what I want to do-I have ripped my entire CD collection to my hard drive and would like to share the list of bands in my collection on some other forums.  I have Win XP and know of no way to do this.  It isn't even anything I have encountered before, but it makes me miss Windows versions with DOS compatibility.  *sigh*At any rate, my cd collection is at E:/albums.  I want to make an editable text listing of the contents of that directory WITHOUT listing all of the subfolders.  For example, the band folders in my E:albums directory are 3 Doors Down, 10 Years, 12 Stones, AC/DC, etc.  THAT is the list I want to create as a text file and be able to edit.Any tips?

I have a folder containing about 450 sub-folders with random titles (Poems), what I want to be able to do; as the content and titles change fairly often (Poems acquire new titles so the sub-folder names change); is to print them out. OK you say, dive into DOS and do all the > and \ stuff, find the folder and then dir > Mylist.txt Two things A) Breaking a butterfly on a wheel springs to mind, and B) It will only give me an alphabetical list and loads of redundant info which has to be deleted line by line.

I need 1) A simple alphabetical list, and 2) A "Last modified" list as even a poem written 10 years ago will not be regarded as finished until I pop my clogs, so I frequently review poems and amend them. This would be easier if I could remember the titles of the darned things and sometimes the title of the poem inside the sub-folder is not the same as the sub-folder title, so a list in WORD to which I could then add the "Interior" title would be a boon!

Or to put it more succinctly, is there a program I can use for this?

Hello everyone!

I am here because I am wondering if Windows has such thing as the capability of listing a menu of the contents of a folder. For example, I am an ex-MacOS user and in the old days (pre-OSX) there was a program called FreePPP that had a menu item to which you could add applications to. It would simulate what the taskbar does in Windows. Also, the extension gave the ability to the system to "right-click" or "control-click" to list contents of a folder as a menu. There were other programs that would do the same job.

As the MacOS evolved, then OSX brought the dock. With it, any folder that you insert in it becomes a menu, listing the contents. Any folder in it, becomes a submenu, and consecutively, and shortcuts/applications in it; can be launched.

I tried to do the same thing in the Taskbar and no go

I have it in the start menu "All programs" and I click it and opens a list of the contents where I can choose what I want to open. Requires four clicks at least and a hell of a lot of navigation. The above mentioned task, should require no more than two clicks.

This is one of the few features I miss about certain great things the MacOSX has. Can I have a Windows 7 Christmas wish to have it granted? I have looked in the internet extensively for it and there doesn't seem to be an application to do the job. And it doesn't look like the taskbar has those properties currently.

I have a drive at work that is shared by many people. Within it are many folders to organize all the files. At times it is difficult to locate certain files; even using Explorer search becuase the file name may not be known.

What I would like to do is have a "table of contents" document or program to open that displays all the files, showing their folder location, and a link to that file.

I was able to do this somewhat in Excel but with 3,000+ files, doing so manually would be painstakingly difficult and time consuming.

It would be perfect if it was updated automatically, as these files change on a daily basis; adding new files and deleting old ones.

Is this possible? What would be the best program for it? Access?

I have a number of technical documents that are currently unwieldy to find things in. One solution is to have the network drive indexed, but getting that working for a host of people in different locations could be difficult.

I was instead going to create a master index that pulls just the contents from each of the separate documents into one; obviously less functional than searching the entire documents but it should still do the job of allowing people to find important releases.

I can do this manually, and have done, but then the formatting is rubbish and there is no way to alter every line across all 80 pages at once.

Is there a better way of combining the contents pages, and if not then is there a good way of formatting quickly?

I'm thinking of making a python script to do it but if there's another way to do it I'd like to know. Master documents don't seem to do what I want?

Hi all

I am trying to create a spreadsheet with a function that displays a cell's contents based on the selection of two criteria. Basically, I have a big table on one worksheet which holds data relevant to consultants at my company and their sales performance per month. It's a big old table and needs to remain in this format for various reasons. What I'd like to be able to do is have an area on a separate worksheet (within the same Excel file/spreadsheet) whereby I can select a consultant's name from a prepopulated drop down list, and also a month from a prepopulated drop down list, and have it display the sales figure which has been entered for that consultant for that month on the big data table that already exists. Is there a way to do this?
I feel sure I've seen this happen at some point quite easily but I can't remember how to do it.

If it is possible but has to use VBA then it's probably not worth your time telling me how as I have no experience with VBA unfortunately and wouldn't know where to begin! If it uses pivot tables, unfortunately I am almost as green here so a step by step method would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:linking workbooks to create a list

re: "Is this possible?"The easy answer is "probably".However, we are going to need some more details.For example, what exactly do you mean by "the destination workbook places the data in a list from different source workbooks"?Since your source workbooks appear to some kind of "form template", I assuming you don't want an exact replica of each form in the "Tracking Database" destination workbook. (Actually, that would probably be the easiest to do...just create a copy of the template and add it as a new sheet to the Tracking Database workbook.)So if you want a "list", you'll need to tell us where the data is coming from (layout wise) and where it's going to (layout wise).Do you see what I'm getting at?

Each name contained in the list in spreadsheet 1 should hyperlink to its corresponding spreadsheet (tab) contained in the workbook. Do you know is there VBA job for this?

Answer:Create worksheets from a list using excel VBA

I don't know what the list in your first sheet looks like, so I'll assume your list of names begins in A1.All I did was take the macro that you asked for when you wanted to create the TOC and added some code to copy the second sheet over and over, naming each copy based on the list in Sheet 1.Once all the sheets have been created, the TOC code creates a TOC based on those sheets. There are some subtle changes to the original code, but it more or less does the same thing it did before.BTW...if this is what you wanted in the first place, you should have asked for it. When you ask for code in "pieces" we end up having to do more work than if all the requirements are set forth right up front. Please keep that in mind the next time you need some help.As always, test this code in a backup copy of your workbook.Option Explicit

Hi, I'm using Outlook 2007 on Windows 7. Let's say I have 1000 general contacts in my Contacts list. I would like to create a new group or contacts category out of 250 of those contacts, and call it "Art Galleries." I've been researching for hours on how to do this, and can't find any useful directions. I can right click contacts in "Contacts" and "categorize" them. But when I create this "search folder," nothing shows up. In the "Contacts" view of Outlook, I can "Add New Group." It's easy! You just click "Add New Group" and name it. But then what? You get a new group, but how do you add contacts to this group? What I essentially need to do is this:

1 -- Create a specific group of contacts: eg. Art Galleries
2 -- I want to be able to open this group so that I can see all members
3 -- I want to be able to do (2) things with this group: a) email members of the group individually, and b) "Mail Merge" entire group to Word as mailing labels.

Can someone please provide specific instructions (or a link to instructions) on how to create this specific group, or contact list, or category (whatever it's called)? I can do the mail merge by selecting contacts one by one, it's creating the separate list that is being problematic. Thanks so much!

Just moved to Windows 7 from XP and struggling with Windows Live Mail (amongst other things!). Very basic question but I can't find how to add a new Contact list.

Answer:WLM 2011 -how do I create a new Contact list

Did you save (export) your old contact list as a CSV or WAB file? Or do you want to add the contacts individually?

Click on the "book" down in the left bottom corner. This will take you to the contact list. You can add them there individually or click on Import in the header ribbon and import your saved file from XP.

DerbyDad03 - I loved the vba code that you provided another user, and I've been trying to get it to work for my application as well. I am an amatuer with excel and trying my darndest to learn more and more about it. The code you provided is here : I couple of questions I have is how do I accomplish the same thing without the TOC?Also, I am using dates to name the tabs. With the code you provided, it returns an error. What needs to be changed in the code to rename the tabs using dates?

Answer:Create worksheets from a list using excel VBA

If your Dates have / (slashes) they will not work because Sheet names cannot contain slashes.You have to use something like MONTH(A1) & "-" & DAY(A1) & "-" & YEAR(A1) to create a date like "how do I accomplish the same thing without the TOC?"Well, since the code in that thread creates a TOC, you obviously don't want the "same thing".

Hi, I don't even know if what I want to do is possible.

I'm creating an html slideshow with over 600 entries, so I need to list all of the file names in the code, separated by a comma. The file names are all the same except for the numbers being sequential. Example: slide001,slide002,slide003,... Is there any program that can generate a text file like this? Typing this out would be incredibly tedious.

Thanks in advance.

Just built a new system and upon viewing my Mp3 folder all the files and folders within are viewed as Tiles. Right now i just go to view then click list for each folder and its contents manually.

Having quite alot of Mp3's i'd be here for a while doing it this way... is there any quick way to have a folder's contents all viewed as "List"?

Answer:Viewing entire contents of folder as "List"

The assumption is you're running XP here sooo...

Just set a folder the way you want it to look (Details, List, etc) then change the Folder Options so all folders will reflect that change. If it doesn't stick, and for folders that have Folder Tasks enabled (Music, Pictures, Videos, etc), it most likely won't so your only real solution becomes disabling Folder Tasks all together and going back to the Classic look.

After posting this I see another assumption is in order: you may not know how to do what I just suggested.

Run Explorer, browse to a folder with content where you just want the List view - just one folder, regardless of content, and change the View to List right then and there. Click Tools - Folder Options - change the Tasks selection to "Use Windows classic folders" if you want to disable that aspect (recommended). If not, click Apply to all folders and then click Apply, then click OK and that should be that.

If you encounter a "stubborn" folder that simply refuses to change, do the same procedure again above but starting off in that troublesome folder to begin with.

Hope this helps...

Hello allIs it possible to make a drop down list appear if I would to enter @@ in a cell.An example: If I am writing a text in a cell and I needed to insert a special value, then I could type:Hello Mr. @@And then a drop down menu would be created where the two @'s are placed. Then I could select my value from that drop down menu, and then keep typing until I needed a new value and so on.Is this possible to make?/Jacob

Answer:Add/create drop down list if text is entered (on the fly)?

In general, any given cell can only contain the drop down or the text, not both. Consider where they place the Drop Down feature: it's contained within the Data Validation section of Excel. In other words, a Drop Down is supposed to be used to ensure that only the text that the author of the sheet wants in the cell can be placed there.So, to answer your exact question, No...what you are asking for can not be done.That said, we often get "generic" questions in this forum that don't really detail exactly what the requirements are. Fairly often, once the real requirements are laid out, a different solution becomes available.So tell us, what exactly are you trying to accomplish?Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I'm hoping someone can help me perfect a script/batch file etc that will list my folders that do NOT have a particular file extension in it, currently I've been using something similar to the below which would create a list of all directories on the X drive containing jpg files but what I really want is a list of all the folders where I forgot to add the jpg for instance, having to go through the list and comparing to the full folder list to look for differences is too time consuming and often leads to some being missed:

X:\>dir x:\*.jpg /w/o/s > \jpglist.txt

I have Outlook 2003, with SP2.I use the Outlook address book when I write my e-mails. I wish to print out this list, but I see the only way is to print from the contacts list. This appears to be an old one, (backed up from previous versions of Outlook, with old and duplicated entries.

Look in Outlook help. Search for; "Convert your Personal Address Book to a Contacts folder". Basically, you import it into the Contacts folder.You could create a new Contacts folder (Ctrl+Shift+E and select "Contact Items" from the "Folder Contains.." box) or empty the old one and use that.

Any ideas?

Answer:How can I create a list of folders in WORD without retyping them all?

Hello, this is a little bit of a crude way of doing it but it will work.

Click Start>Run. Type 'cmd'. In the command prompt change the directory to the folder you want by typing 'cd /D FOLDERLOCATION' and click enter. An example: 'cd /D C:\Folders'.

Then type 'dir' and press enter.

This will list the folder names as well as a few other bits of information. Right click within the command prompt and select mark. Highlight the text and click enter to copy. Then paste into word.

Another command is 'dir > C:\Folders.txt'. This will save the information on your C: Drive in a text file called folders.txt.

Simply open the txt file with notepad and copy the contents into word. You will probably have to remove some of the other information like folder size.

I hope this helps.

Hello, I am hoping that you can help me with an excel problem. I have a large list of clients who completed tests of various days and each client?s name appears several times on the list based on them completing a test on a given day. For example, (in Sheet1) John Doe appears in column A, 25 times based on the dates he completes a tests. The date that he completed the test is in column B and, the amount he is charged in Column C, the date he paid for the test in column D and the amount he paid on that date in column E. I have included an example below. What I would like to do is to automatically create a record for each client in Sheet2, where the name of each client would appear only one time. So, each time a new client who completes a test is entered into Sheet1, their name would appear is column A (only one time), of Sheet2 and then I could do some formulas to keep a running balance for each client.

What is troubling me is getting the macro to select a range from an input box, the using that input to create a list. It's the partcular language included in the .Add command that I do not understand I defined the input box as a range variable celRng, and I am trying to get Formula1: = celRng.

It looks to me like you open the 'With Selection Validation' statement without closing it before the If statement.
Try adding End With before the If statement above your error, then add another 'With' Selection Validation' after the Else statement.

You can also put msgbox = celRng after the else statement to check the variable value before the error.

It's difficult to describe my situation in words, so I'll just show you what I'm trying to do.

I have a table that looks like this:

A, B, C
Name, Hours, OT hours
Jane, 166, 0
Jack, 163, 17
Mike, 168, 0
Dot, 167, 24
Erin, 164, 8
Carmen 158,0

and I want to create a list that will have 2 rows if there are OT hours, and 1 if there are not.

A, B
Jane, 166
Jack, 163
Dot, 167
Dot, 24
Erin, 164
Carmen, 158

I can't use macros or VBA. It has to be formula driven. I can use a helper column or two. The starting table will change depending on who charged hours where. I've been trying to use IF and OFFSET and ROWS to do it, and it works until there's 2 consecutive rows that have OT hours.

Just to clarify, I just need to know how to get column A listed properly elsewhere in the spreadsheet - I can derive Column B using vlookup.

Thanks so much!

I'm trying to add a drop down list to a cell, this is what i have done so far
  Range ddlRng = worksheetname.Range[
                    worksheetname.Cells[firstRow, Column],
                    worksheetname.Cells[lastRow, Column]];
                ddlRng.Validation.Add(XlDVType.xlValidateList, XlDVAlertStyle.xlValidAlertStop, XlFormatConditionOperator.xlBetween, "Opt1,Opt2,Opt3", Missing.Value);
at validation.add() line it throws an exception saying "Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC"
and this is the StackTrace

If I can describe my problem.

I have a table containing 2 columns one has the contents a-f and the second has a text content relevant to that letter i.e. A=large flange over centre line. tblVariant

A second table lists the products along with their variant letter. tblProduct.

I have created a form based on tblProduct and I want the text box to have a popup window that displays the relevant text for the contents of that box when the mouse hovers over it?

Is it possible?

I am not a 100% on how I managed this but here were my last steps:
- changed the host file in c\windows\system32\drivers\etc
- rebooted computer
- received system errors, so I ran a HDD defragmenter
- I then tried to access a file in c\program files but could not find it, but it mysteriously felt like I was in the c\windows directory. So I looked in c\windows and found the file I was previously looking for in c\program files.

The other problem is that any file or program that is rooted in those folders gives me an error message reading "location is unavailable" whenever I try to access it.

Needless to say, My computer is JACKED and I would appreciate and help on this.

If this is at all confusing just ask and i will try to explain it better



Answer:contents of C\windows switched with contents of c\program files

Try doing a System Restore predating the issue.

I use XP Pro....
I keep my audio files in folders. And I don't know why every now and then when I open these folders all the files show in "Tile mode". I hate that and always convert them all to "List mode". But in a few days they go back to all showing in "Tile mode" again.

Is there a way to make all the contents of folders Always show in "List mode"?

Answer:Make folder contents always show as "List" not "Tiles"?

i was trying yesterday to find out for several hours how to create in Outlook 2000 distribution list with names chosen upon one, specific outlook "category"... I know how to create distribution list itself... I know how to make outlook to show me all names in my address book with this specific category... BUT, how mix it together and in the end receive distribution list with all names of this category included, I cant do it, i am too big idiot comparing to MS coders.... ((

Yours, but very sad and disappointed about my mental possibilities


Answer:Outlook 2K: How to create distribution list based upon certain outlook category???

Hi Jazzek -- I just did this, with the help of Russ Valentine at the MS Outlook newsgroups. Here are the instructions he sent me (and I used successfully):

"Change the Contacts Folder View to Categories. Right click and drag the
desired Category to
a newly created sub folder then choose Copy. Make sure the new sub folder
has been enabled as an email address book by right clicking on it and
choosing Properties and Outlook Address Book Tab and checking the box to
as email address book. Create your Distribution List but make sure the Show
Names drop down field points to the new sub folder then shift select all the
contacts and voila."

I hate cruising the MS Newsgroups, as the interface is so weird and searching the archives is a total pain on their site (and incomplete in my newsreader), but I DO occasionally get help there.

Hope this helps. If I've misunderstood your problem, post me back.

I would like to somehow copy the "Now Playing" list from Windows Media Player and get it into a word processor to edit as I like. Unless I'm missing something obvious there does not seem to be any "Print" or "Save List" or similar option. I've tried highlighting the list and using Copy and Paste but that doesn't work. Any ideas?

Answer:How can I create an editable "Now Playing" list in WMP?

Save the now playing list as a playlist first by clicking the drop down arrow and 'save playlist as', choose 'M3u' in the save as type drop down box.
Then go to the saved playlist file and open directly with word. (right click it, open with, word) You'll have your editable info ready to go.

I'm running Win10 Pro 64bit and Revo Uninstaller Pro v3.1.5. There is a huge discrepancy in the installed programs lists provided by Revo Uninstaller and the Win10 Programs and Features control panel. They both say there are 83 installs (that's good). But Revo Uninstaller claims that 15 programs were installed a few days ago on 2/29/2016. The correct number is 3 which is what Win10 says. Today I uninstalled Revo Uninstaller (using Revo Uninstaller to do it) and then reinstalled it. No help.

I guess it might be OK to ignore this discrepancy but I find it surprising.

I show same thing. You may have discovered a "leap day" bug in the Revo app. I wouldn't worry about it, honestly. It's how it calculates the term "Recently". If you use CCleaner and look at tools/uninstall it list progs. Sort descending get a another answer.

I am trying to add a Microsoft Outlook 2003 Outlook Address Book | Contacts vcard to a Signature. However, when I test an email with the signature, the attached vcard contacts the data in the Global Address List, not the personal contact address list. I have tried saving the personal contact vcard to my local drive, but that did not correct the problem. How do I keep Outlook from pulling the vcard data from the Global Address List and use the personal contact data? Denzil

I have an EXTERNAL USB Drive 1gb that I use to IMAGE machines all the time.  An employee got a new laptop Dell E5470 with an M.2 Sata SSD, and when I boot this machine to the external drive to apply a new image, diskpart does not show the External HDD under List Volume or List Disk.  I have played around in the BIOS thinking because of the new M.2 Sata SSD there was a setting that was causing this but I am unable to find anything that allows this to work.  It will boot from the External Drive but when running diskpart, it will not sow the drive so I can't apply and image or take an image since I have no were to place the image or copy it from.

I had a distribution list for a mass email for some of our customers. But when we got Microsoft Exchange everything copied over but this one (the most important list!) did not copy over. But I checked through the sent messages and was able to copy the list from the BCC Field to a text file.
