    Hi Harish
     I Don't know why u need the size of files for 10 by 10. Ok leave it ur problem.

    The following code will solve ur problme. Actually this will give some new logics for u. U can change the code as per ur requirement.

    Private Sub Command1_Click()
        MsgBox fncFileSize(1, "C:\VB-Project\NewProcess\OldErrFiles") & " Bytes"
        MsgBox fncFileSize(2, "C:\VB-Project\NewProcess\OldErrFiles") & " Bytes"
        MsgBox fncFileSize(3, "C:\VB-Project\NewProcess\OldErrFiles") & " Bytes"
    End Sub
    Private Function fncFileSize(intParam As Integer, strFilePath As String) As Long
    On Error GoTo ErrFunc

        Dim fs, RAWFolder, File
        Dim intCount As Integer
        Dim lngFirst, lngSecond, lngElse As Long
        Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.filesystemObject")
        Set RAWFolder = fs.GetFolder(strFilePath & "\" & gstrFileFolder)
        intCount = 0
        lngFirst = lngSecond = lngElse = 0
        If (Right(strFilePath, 1) = "\") Then
            strFilePath = Mid(strFilePath, 1, Len(strFilePath) - 1)
        End If
        For Each File In RAWFolder.Files
            intCount = intCount + 1
            Select Case intCount
                Case 1 To 10
                    lngFirst = lngFirst + FileLen(strFilePath & "\" & File.Name)
                    If (intCount = 10 And intParam = 1) Then Exit For
                Case 11 To 20
                    lngSecond = lngSecond + FileLen(strFilePath & "\" & File.Name)
                    If (intCount = 20 And intParam = 2) Then Exit For
                Case Else
                    lngElse = lngElse + FileLen(strFilePath & "\" & File.Name)
            End Select

        Select Case intParam
            Case 1
                fncFileSize = lngFirst
            Case 2
                fncFileSize = lngSecond
            Case Else
                fncFileSize = lngElse
        End Select
        Exit Function
        fncFileSize = 0
    End Function

    Good Luck
