How can I get the intellisense to show up when working with the FileSystemObject? I went to tools->References and checked the box to include "Microsoft Scripting Runtime". I only need to include it in the references correct? I created a FSO and then tried doing FSO. and no methods or properties were showing up. I tried pressing ctrl+space to see if it would force the intellisense, but no luck. Is there something else I need to include in my code or reference?

Code:
    ' Create & Set File Sytem Ojbect (Part of MS Scripting Library)
    Dim FSO
    Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    
    Dim fsoFolder, fsoFiles, fsoFile
    Dim szFileList As String
    'Get the folder where files are located
    Set fsoFolder = FSO. 'IT'S RIGHT HERE WHERE I REALIZED INTELLISENSE WAS NOT SHOWING

Declare as the correct FSO data type:
Code:
    Dim FSO As Scripting.FileSystemObject
    Dim fsoFolder As Folder
    Dim fsoFiles As Files
    
    'Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set FSO = New Scripting.FileSystemObject

You are awesome! Thanks!!! That's what I get trying to read through the MSDN, sometimes the examples are terrible. On the MSDN they were declaring everything without types (Variants)
