How would I get a file list from zip as fully qualified file names. I can get the list of file names but cannot see a way to make that list fully qualified.

What do you mean by "fully qualified"?

I suspect you mean absolute file path. If the file path stored within the zip for a given file is just the filename, such as "test.txt", then there is no absolute file path.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I mean absolute file path. Winzip shows the folder structure. I need to get at the full listing to see if I can prevent duplicated folders (& files) from unzipping. I want to unzip the files in the top level folders.

The folder structure is something like this:

A ATop ATopdata ; I need to stop unzipping when this folder is done. ATopDataTop ; the top level was copied down here ATopDataTopData

The problem is further complicated by the fact that the folder names are not consistent, so I figure that I start with a full listing from the zip!
