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.
