    Select a file by browse (Access XP)

    I need the facility to select a file path and name by a browse box rather than typeing in the whole path name into a text field on a form.

    What additional software do I need or is there something in Access I could use.

    You should be able to use the FileDialog object to return the path and name for a file. See VBA Help for FileDialog Property.
