Dear Statalisters,

I apologize if this is an obvious question, but does anyone know a way to return a list of files or directories that preserves case? Something like:
--local filelist : dir "C:\files" files ".txt"--
will fill the macro filelist with the .txt files in "C:\files", but the file names in the macro are all lowercased, whereas the file names in "C:\files" have some capital letters.

I ask because I need to create a running list of text files, but I have no control over what they are named. I'm still using version 9.2 (unfortunately).

Many thanks,
