  3. This is a good bit of code. What I am struggling with is to amend the code to carry on the search in all subfolders. Ideally I’d love some code that would allow me to look for all Purchase Orders files containing “(SPO)” and to list them as you have here with a hyperlink on the file name. Again ideally this files contains field, would be a user typed variable, so we could look at all acknowledgements “(ACK)” or project references etc
