Question Request for shell script for listing directories, subdirs containing specific files.

I'm looking for a script which outputs the list of directories and sub directories from root level consisting of specific files. For instance I want shell script to list all the directories and subdirectories containing .txt files.Smilie

Try using find
Code:
man find         # for detail in find
find . -type f -name "*.txt"

posix,

Thanks for the providing the command. Want I really want is shell script outputing just the directories and subdirectories and not list the files.
Code:
$ find . -type f -name '*sas7b*'
./employee.sas7bdat
./employee.sas7bndx
./employee1.sas7bdat
./sasuser.v91/regstry.sas7bitm
./test/employee.sas7bdat
./test/new1.sas7bvew

I'm looking for list like following
Code:
.
./test

. is my home directory
