automated reference attaching

following problem is bothering me.

for creating a file for my rendering I have to attach 100+ files from several folders within a project folder.

does anyone know how to automate (macro) reference attachment from several folders. and I mean all the files in the folder have to be attached as references to one microstation file.

thank you for your response!

RE: automated reference attaching

We use an archive/file manager called Falcon. As far as I know. I wish you luck on your quest.

RE: automated reference attaching

If your using any version of ustation after v7 (J or SE) then use the attach reference go to the directory and click on it to open and show all sub files
  (click the first file and hold the shift key then click  the last file, just like in windows explorer)
and the all the files will remain select to attach as refernce files..
or open two windows one the attach ref in ustn and the other windows explorer select all the files in explore and drag over to the ref attach diaog and drop in then as Bob's your uncle the lot are select as ref attachments.
