    Question Unanswered: Browse button on form

    In my database users download certain text files stored in a separate folder on a network drive. I have managed it to work so that by clicking a command button, it prompts with concerned folder location path and you have to type in the exact name of file with extension .txt at the end and it downloads it. But in this case there are always chances of mistyping.

    I wonder how can I set it up like a browse button so that user would only click on the relevant file in a folder and it would select it for download in database?

    Can anybody help?
