Open/Save dialog in ACCESS 95

How can I open an Open/Save dialog box in an ACCESS 95 form?  
 
Obs: In ACCESS 2.0 I'm using the function WLIB_GetFileName(), defined in the WZLIB.MDA file.

If you check the MS Knowledge Base
http://www.microsoft.com/kb/
and run a search for Open File Dialog API, there is an article there that has instructions for using the windows Open File Dialog Box. Not sure of the article number, but I know its there because I've used it.

The article that I found, describes how to use the Open Dialog Box from ACCESS 2.0. But this procedure doesn't work in ACCESS 95 once some of the used functions and Types are not declared at the system libraries of this version.

If you look in the northwind database that comes with access, they open up this box when tables are reattached and the database can't be found. I have used this code (with database name modifications) for all of my access95 apps.
Hope this helps.
