How to search across directories for a file containing specific text.

Uses a recursive technique to search sub-directories (similiar to the Windows Find utility). Also shows how to properly cancel a long routine. The recursive procedure is similiar to the DirView sample but uses slower VB directory changing and searching methods rather than API functions.
