Hi Brian and Aman

I do have Windows XP on my computer, however I went to the Microsoft site
and downloaded the Windows Script Host and installed it. I re-started the
PC and the script works brilliantly and I have the folders being spoken.
Thanks both of you for your help, this will save a lot of time.
