Set CommonDialog1.Flags = cdlOFNAllowMultiselect

Before the .ShowOpen, this displays a different open dialog which allows multiple file selection. You
should specify the .FileName property as a wildcard e.g., "*.*" as well before the .ShowOpen. The .FileName
property will return the list of files selected seperated by spaces. Use Split(String," ") to get an
array of the filenames.

Unless you've set the flag to instruct it to use long file names.
