just do this...very simple

commondialog1.showopen
if commondialog1.filename = "" then
 msgbox "You pressed cancel!"
else
 msgbox "You picked: " & commondialog1.filename
end if


simple as that

the only condition in which Commondialog1.filename = "" is when the user presses cancel, so simply check to see if its empty will let you know if the user hit cancel.

If you have the commondialog on another form and when you press cancel the result still comes up as the opened path so when you press cancel the result isnt blank renew the ocx i had a problem with that a while back and for some reason that work???

If not just:

CommonDialog.Showopen
If CommonDialog.Filename <> "" Then
' Code here to do what ever with the directory
Else: ' Maybe message box saying error if you need a path
End if
