I want to use a common dialog box to find path to save an existing folder. Please let me know how to use this VB control

My form looks like this

      Save(Label)              Comboof Dialog box which should allow user to find path               Save(Button)

Save button takes all folders from certain path and saves then in the path given by Comboof Dialog box.

Thank you.
