    Unanswered: Open windows explorer..on click


    I am creating a database. And in the FORM I want to give option to the manager that he can search for the resumes for the keyword (All the resumes are stored inthe dir). I know we can do this from windows explorer..find..folder files for a text or a keyword. Is there any way this can be done from MS Access like we can open up windows explorer on click from MS Access FORM and then he can look for resumes form there?

    Please let me know if this can be done from MS Access.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not quite sure of exactly what you are seeking to do here. Are you wanting to open the Windows Explorer or to utilize a File Search engine?

    If you just want to open Windows Explorer, do this in the OnClick event code window for a Command button:

    Dim i As Long
    i = Shell("EXPLORER.EXE"", vbNormalFocus)
