Hello,

I'm searching for a software that creates a txt-file for every other file in the folder (incl. sub-folders). The name of the txt-file should be the same as the name of the original file(s). Any idea?

Greetings from Germany,
Aron

That sounds very much like a "report".
I use XYplorer for this kind of stuff, but I guess other File Explorers can do that, and possiby there even is dedicated software for this task.

Hi Aron

you dont actually mean a list of contents ?

do you mean, say we have files
A.doc
B.doc
C.doc
that you want three new txt files created
A.txt,
etc,

There is a thread here somewhere about filenote
http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=11218.0
that might help
or this one

Thanks to you both for the suggestions. I'll take a look at them.

@ tomos: That's actually almost the thing I need this software for. Put some folders and subfolders with more files in the structure and that's it. BTW, the txt-files should be stored in the same folders as the original files they refert to.

Cheers
Aron

I've just been bored and put together few blocks ;)

So... if you've got .NET framework 2.0 installed then it should work properly:

BTW You can write down proper path by yourself easily thanks to auto-complete.

@ fenixproductions: Wow! Thanks!

Hope it wasn't complicated (I'm not into programming at all …). It works perfect and it's exactly what I looked for. It'll surley be handy for others who need such a program too. Thx again  :)

Good to hear you're happy.

It's not complicated (not even 100 lines). Just getting blocks together in couple of minutes.
