(Excellent)
   
Here's an example of the functionality you are looking for.

The function is in the form:

ReturnValue = FindFile(<File>, ByRef <Size>)



Where ReturnValue is the the full path and filename of the file that's been found.
<File> is the file name to search for.
<Size> is a Long variable passed by reference, which is populated with the files size in bytes.

My bid is for the code to this example
which is complete and fully commented.

Regards,

- Aaron.
