Does the list file path macro list file paths greater than 250 characters?

If not, is it possible to do this?

The FSO macro to list files in a folder doesn't work for file paths beyond a certain length, but the macro in our tutorial on Looping through Files in a Folder with VBA allows it. Because it doesn't actually open the files so it ought to work for you. By default, it lists the files in the immediate window, but you can modify the code to list files in your Excel workbook by replacing

        Debug.Print file


        i = i + 1
        Range("A" & i) = strDir & file
