Open File Dialog

I am using Access 2010 (64 bit). I had no problem with the Access 2003 using the GetOpenFileName function with the "comdlg32.dll" declaration. With Access 2010 (64 bit) this does not work. I have found the following code on the web to show the Windows open file dialog box. How do I retrieve the path and file name that was selected?

Here is what I found to open the dialog box;
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub cmdFileDialog_Click()
  2. Dim f    As Object
  3. Set f = Application.FileDialog(3)
  4. f.AllowMultiSelect = True
  5. f.Show
  6. MsgBox "file choosen = " & f.selecteditems.Count
  7. End Sub
