How to open a file dialogue box in Access97

P: n/a
Sam
I would like to allow the user to choose a file in Access97. I believe
it should be a "common dialogue" control, but it's difficult to find
information on it. If someone could give me some direction, I'd really
appreciate it.

thanks in advance,

That approach is *much* more stable than the common dialog control, even if
you can find it somewhere.

Thanks very much! I prefer using an API anyway, since I distribute the
application and didn't want to include a huge OCX. Actually, I used an
API do do it in Access 2.0, but somehow or other that original API
disappeared...

thanks again,
