I have some VBA code that I found and I am just trying to get a list of all files (well almost all files) in a certain folder. Problem is a thumbs.db file and thumbs.db folder have appeared and are screwing up my list. I have tried some to set the file attribute of thumbs files so that I could delete it. Any suggestions?

What's the code you're using? It shouldn't be that difficult to check when the current file is thumbs.db and ignore it.
