Parsing through a directory

Hi All. I have a program that reads input files and produces output files. The folder that contains the inputfiles is selected by the user. Now, I look through folderitem.item up to folderitem.count to perform something on each element in the folder. What if I wanted to be selective over which files are input files, e.g. use the same folder for output files and somehow ignore the output files. I could go about this by parsing the title of the input files and looking for some phrase or extension. Is this the easiest way? Is there a way to quickly get the extension of a folderitem? The type property does not seem to contain the relevant information.

use COUNTFIELDS and NTHFIELD parsing F.DISPLAY name using period as the delmiter

You want the Last field


thank you dave - always brilliant advice
