How can I invoke the File System Dialog box

I am using the following code and it works fine. Instead of hard coding the
location for saving the file I will like to use the file dialog box in
windows. So that the user and give a name to the file and also select a
location to save it in. I then would like to grab the path and file name
information and use that to save the dataset.

PLS help I will be forever grateful.

Dim strSQL As String


Dim strConn As String

strConn = "User ID=ss;pwd = 123;Initial Catalog=IMIS_PR ODUCTION;Data

Dim sqlconn As New SqlConnection(s trConn)


Dim sqlDA As New SqlDataAdapter( strSQL, sqlconn)
Dim objds As New DataSet()

sqlDA.Fill(objd s, "dtnames")
objds.WriteXml( "c:\imis_web_te st.xls")
dg1.DataSource = objds.Tables.It em("dtnames")
'dg1.PagerStyle .NextPageText = "Next"
'dg1.PagerStyle .PrevPageText = "Previous"

You'll need to write you own popup file dialog box. There is no way to pop
a server side file dialog on the client side.
