    does Access have a browse button? (2K)

    I would like to store links to images, but I don't want to ask people to type in the path where the image is stored. I would like to give them a browse button so that they could go to that location, and type just the filename in a text box. Then somehow capture that information from the browse function. Is there any way to do this?

    Re: does Access have a browse button? (2K)

    Access doesn't handle ActiveX controls very well, so I won't recommend the dialog control for Access, but if you search the Lounge, you can find plenty of threads and examples that deal with a File Open dialog. It requires WinAPI calls in Access, unlike some of the other Office apps, but the code is readily available.
