    not to my knowledge but if you use the "command prompt" and navigate to the correct folder you can type

    Code:
     
    DIR *.dwg /b > LIST.TXT
    which will get you a list of all the dwg files in that folder into a text document that can then be openned by excel.

    There are some free tools out there that can list files to various formats. Google "file lister freeware" and pick out one that suits your needs.

    If you open Notepad and copy / paste the text from the earlier post into it then save it as a .bat file for example Drg_List.bat, you can then copy this file into any folder in Windows Explorer you want a drawing list from. When you want a list of files in that folder just double click on the Drg_List.bat file.

    If you use the code DIR *.DWG /B > List.csv it will create a file called List.csv, when you double click on this file it will open in Excel.
