Have you tried it - does it work as you expected?

I do have a directory lister that does exactly the same job but you have to manually copy/paste into excel. This eliminates that step.

Yes better than I expected as it gives folder sizes and last modified dates. There is no documentation, on my first couple of runs it failed because it ran out of rows. You need to be careful how many sub-directories levels you enter (-1 appears to be all of them), I also un-checked the 'list files' box. It can take a while to scan, It made me late leaving work! I was using Excel 2003 but I will try it with 2007 next week.
