  • " & vbCrLf ' otherwise loop through list of subfolders Else For Each objSubFolder In objFolder.SubFolders Response.Write "
  • " & objSubFolder.Name & "
  • " & vbCrLf Next End If %>
    <% ' if there are no files, output status message If objFolder.Files.Count = 0 Then Response.Write "
  • No files or error trying to get the folder " & _ strDIR & "
  • " & vbCrLf ' otherwise loop through list of files in the folder Else For Each objFile In objFolder.Files Response.Write "
