New to SharePoint & ASP is there any way to simply list folders from a given network path and display them in a SharePoint webpage?

Thanks Niall

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It is possible using the Page viewer webpart. Simply drop it on the page and point it to a network folder.

That;s great and works. But is there anyway I can pull that into a table as I want to list owners of folders in line with them being pulled in. Does that make sense? – NDoherty Apr 19 '13 at 21:22
Well, you could create a visual webpart that gets the file information into a collection and binds it to a grid view. Is that more like what you are trying to do? – Richard Apr 23 '13 at 14:34
Yes thats more along the lines of what I require. – NDoherty Apr 24 '13 at 15:28
