I am fairly new to IS 10.5 and have what I hope is an easy question. after my files have been installed, I want to go to a specific install folder and read all the file names from the folder, so I can loop through them one at a time performing tasks using the file name. Is there a function that will help me accomplish this?

Thanks!
Alison

FindAllFiles function? You may want to familiarize yourself with built-in InstallScript functions.

Thank you, TsungH. I saw that function, but I was not sure if that was the best method to use. I just was putting out feelers to see if there might be something I missed that was better at iterating through files in folders. Seeing the word "Find" made me wary about the function being best in performance.

Thanks again for your quick response!
