my filebox is named file1 and my dir box dir1.
These commands do i use:
file1.path = dir1
that says that wich dir i select is the path of the files.
But when i create a open button to open a file such as shell=file1 than the path is not found how do i use file1 and dir1 in one command?

the file1.path property will give you the full path to that file

whenever the directory changes use this code:

Private Sub Dir1_Change()
    File1.Path = Dir1.Path
End Sub


to load the file use "file1.path & file1.filename"
