Hi Experts,
I build one application using Access 2003, and used File Dialog box to open and select the Text file for import purpose. This browse button is working fine on my machine but when i deployed the application on client machine which also Access 2003. Browse button is not working.

I even try to use custom function written by one MVP-ACCESS. which works on my machine but not on client machine.

whats wrong with that machine..... any help


Thanks in advance for your time and help.

When you say this:
> I even try to use custom function written by one MVP-ACCESS

Do you mean the function here:
http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0001.htm

? I would suspect something wrong with comdlg32.dll, but this is a fundamental Windows component. Have you tried changing your error handling to "Break on all errors" to see if an error is being generated?

shanesuebsahakarn,

Thanks for your quick Answer, I am not sure if the both function are same, but i took that code long time ago, and forgot the source. but yes, that function use to work in Access 97 and now its working Access 2003 too. but its not working on Client's computer.


We both using windows 2000 professional and Access 2003. I can't understand why File dialog box is not working when i am using built in commondialog ....do i need to check any library for that....

what am i missing here... ....

Does it give any errors or does it simply not work? Have you tried changing the debug mode? (VBA editor, Tools->Options->General->Break on all errors).

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

No, that reference is only relevant if you are using the common dialog ActiveX control (the FileDialog object and the API code don't use this).
