The Dir statement is available in VBA. Look in your helpfile for more information about it, it can give you a list of all files/subdirectories in a directory.
You can use the SHBrowseForFolder API to display a system browse dialog box to select a file.  Sample VB code:

Thanks for expert's help.

One more question:
as for the open file dialog, can I set a default driver and directory to look in?
Which dialog box are you using?

I'm using GetOpenFilename to start a open-file dialog to load files.  But I need to point to a specified directory when starting the dialog.
But GetOpenFileName doesn't provide option to set directory for searching.
