    I've done this before both in Terminal and Finder but I can't remember how. I want to create a spreadsheet from a directory listing. Not the actual files, just the listing in Finder or Terminal. Any help would be appreciated.

    In finder, open in Column view (other views may work too, I didn't try)
    Select All
    Copy
    Paste into the cell in Numbers you want to start the list with.
    Done.

    Drag and Drop doesn't work, you have to copy and paste.
