I do not think it is very useful:

<body>
<p id="here">

<script>
(nod=document.createElement("input")).type="file";
document.body.insertBefore(nod, document.getElementById("here"));
</script>

tahnks = but I meant can I create the pop up window that occurs when you
[ress "browse" without actually creating the browse buttonm itself. ie. can
lI launch a page and onLoad the browse window will appear?

No that is not possible with an internet javascript code. It would be a
securitiy violation, IMHO.
