Dir in Word2011 does not allow wildcard searches. I can live with that. But I still need to limit my search to something other than the entire folder, and that seems to be provided with the command Dir(foldername,MacID("filetype")) However, there is zero, nada, zilch in the documentation as to what the 'filetype' calls are. I tried to find them on my own with a routine like this: adoc=Dir() atype=MacID(adoc) but that didn't work. Is there a listing or method to determine file types for MacID?
