    Yes. I've used a File Open / Save API to have users select files and I have written my own custom dialog to let users choose a file as well.

    I don't have access to my normal system today, so I can't look up the code for you, but have a hunt around for Access File Open API in google and see what you find

    Others are sure to point you to a direct link too
