    Question Unanswered: How to Use File Browser in dbs??

    I'm Writing a db for Risk Assessment and Management, I have a few Data Libraries and I want to let the User to Install them in where ever he/she wants so I need my program to ask the user the location of dll files when the user put them in somewhere else than the default location.
    I can make a Form to ask for address but it is not a good idea, If I could use Windows browser to ask the user to locate the dll files it would be a great job.

    The code bank has some lovely ways of doing this!
    What you're looking for is called the "File System Object" (or FSO for short).
