Workout Example 13 – Recursive file and folder size within a folder

Many a times we need a tool, which should recursively put file names and file sizes within a folder.

I mean to say that, if you pass name of a folder and say in that folder, it has

  1. 11 files
  2. 2 foldersThen it should again go into the 2 folders and if it finds a folder again say in any of the folder, it should go within that folder too and should create result, with name and size of all the files & folders.

Workout Example 14 – Combine all the files inside a folder through VBA


1. Combine Multiple files – having same layout (same number of fields and fields are always in the same column) but not neessarily same number of rows

2. Also put file name as first column in the final data set


  1. All the data files are in the same folder
  2. There is nothing other than data files in that folder
  3. Usually data files should have a way to know, which file was referred
  4. All the data files are excel files only
