:thumbsup: I have a feeling I'm about to be embarrassed but I have to ask anyway.
I am a personnel recruiter and, as such, have a large number of resumes within the Resume Folder. Actually, each candidate has his/her own folder within the Resume folder. I need to compare the number of Resumes within the Resume folder to the database of skills. It was easy in Outlook 1997 but I'm stumped in Outlook 2007 running WinXP.

All I want is the number of folders within the Resume Folders. I can get total files easily enough.

Sounds to me like any database would give you great flexibility...a job for MS Access, IMO.

I don't get the connection between Outlook...and a database folder in a Human Resources type of function. Sounds to me like the wrong tool for anything other than email/contacts.

But...to attempt to answer your questions...if there is a contact established for every person submitting a resume...simply see how many are listed in your Contacts database/listing.

Or...some file management tool like WinDirStat...I don't know.

If you use Explorer and right click on a folder then go to properties it will show you the amount of files and folders.
Is that what you were asking?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Yes, and I am so red in the face.

Now, how do I find out how many entries in my Outlook/Contacts/Candidates folder? The number should be the same as in my Resume folder.
