    The posts I've seen for this topic were from before 2006 and I'm hoping
    something new is out there. I want to print a list of folders from our
    shared drive. I've been successful pulling my own info using cmd, but the
    command defaults to my drive and won't let me change it our shared drive.

    Any ideas?

    One way is to run a BAT or CMD file in the folder in question.

    bat file contains

    DIR *.* /AD /S > filelist.txt

    Can you break it down a little more, Bob? I'm not a power-user. Thanks.

    Make a text file with Notepad, put "DIR" line of info in it. Save it,
    change the extension from .TXT to .BAT( or .CMD), copy the file into the
    directory in question and then double-click it to run it. your folder
    list will appear in the file called "filelist.txt" open that and print it.
