File names to put in Microsoft Word

Watch DDFileCatcher make a table in Word and fill it with file information.

In their item "How to Print a Folder Listing in Windows", Microsoft suggest using Print Screen and saving an image using Microsoft Paint. The problem with this method is that the list can't be manipulated, ie sorted, searched, edited or printed in a different format, for example landscape. File lists made by DDFileCatcher can be printed, searched, put in spreadsheets or databases and printed in any format settable with you word processor or other program.

DDFileCatcher stands for "drag and drop file catcher". DDFileCatcher is a user-friendly file listing utility used to copy file names from Windows Explorer as text. It can be launched from Microsoft Word or Excel and put the file paths in a Word table or Excel spreadsheet. As a stand-alone program, the file paths can be put in the Clipboard and pasted to anywhere you need them, such as an e-mail, a dialog or the source code of a computer program. Select files in a folder and drop or paste them onto DDFileCatcher as in this screenshot.

In conclusion DDFileCatcher has found a niche market that no one else has taken advantage of. The really good news is not that they have found this niche, but how much thought they have put into the program. The options are really well thought out, and DDFileCatcher is extremely easy to use.
