I have three folders composing multiple shape files. (Each shape files comprise more than ten polygons.)

I want to calculate the areas of the shape files within one folder each time (using ArcCatalog).

Please kindly suggest any code (VBA or python) for this.
Thank you.

(I tried Dr. Patterson's python code but failed on both ArcGIS 9.2 and 9.3.)
