Monitor and set an alert for Invalid file names

I want to monitor the particular Folder where people are placing the excel sheets for some activities.

I want to make sure that people should take care of the below rules before placing the excel sheets.

1. The excel sheet should be in xls format (Excel 97-2003 Workboomk Format)
2. The excel file name should not contain any space
3. The length of the filename should not exceed 15 characters.

I want to set a email alert to me if the users placed a excel sheet without following the above 3 rules.

I need a VB script to monitor the folder. Kindly help me on this.

RE: Monitor and set an alert for Invalid file names

... and what have you done so far ? Which subtask makes you the trouble ?
