My question: is there a way to automate a list of files on a network
drive? I am searching for a program that will analyze the names of all
files on our network drive and output those filenames as a spreadsheet or
text delimited file. If possible, it would be great to be able to somehow
import this information into a database automatically, but I know that's a
far reach.

Does anyone out here have any experience with this? Or am I barking up the
wrong tree?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you can migrate all the files to a web directory, you can index them all automatically with the built-in index server under Windows IIS. That might be the easiest approach. Then users could just access the index search page (there's a default one that you can customize) and run their own damn searches, leaving you guys alone. Does that work for you?
