I am sure it can be done but dont know the syntax or commands to use. I have a script that is deleting files from a specific desktop which works, but I want to capture the names of the files I am deleting and write them to a log file that is created while the script runs. If needed I can post the script, but really I am just wondering about the one part.

You neglected to mention what language your script is written in.

In this case, you could use the FileSystemObject object and its methods to:
1) Create an output text file using the TextStream object
2) Write each file's name to the output file before deleting it
3) Close the output file
