open a folder from a form

P: n/a
Hi,

i'm hoping someone would be able to help with this.

what i need to do is to be able to open a set folder from a access form. at present i have to go into windows explorer and find the folder that way.

i'm hoping that i can open this folder by clicking an icon on a form that takes me straight there.

many thanks
Lee-Anne

What do you mean by "open a set folder"? Are you saying you want to see a
list of what files are in it so that you can select one? If so, take a look
at http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0001.htm at "The Access Web"
