Yes, that code works nicely in FB and does all the working directory (WD) work behind the scenes. Unfortunately, most (if not all) of the code used to support FOLDER uses WDs and some of the parameter block (PB) calls are deprecated (e.g. pbGetcatinfosync). As noted in the FBtoC docs, FOLDER will not be supported in its current state. It might be possible for someone to write a replacement that provides similar functionality but uses the current file manager calls. Brian S.
