The following doesn't even compare with Richard's link but, in the event that you can live with the information output by the MS dir command, then you could just change your /b to /q.

For example, something like:

filename fh pipe 'dir /q /s c:\tir\ddir'; data fdir (drop=dir); infile fh lrecl=300 truncover firstobs=6; input date mmddyy8. @11 time $10. @23 dir $5. @28 size $10. @38 owner $22. @61 name $40.; if trim(upcase(dir)) ne '<DIR>' and date ne .; run;

I also have code to find out some properties of a file. I'd like to get the size, owner, and other attributes of each file in my dir. Any ideas how?
