FileDialog - User defined error - reference needed.
Posted on 2006-11-20
I got the following code from VB help in MS Access to use a filedialog because I would like the window to come up so the user can select a file and then I will pass that to some other functions. I am getting a UserDefined error which makes me think I need to set a reference but I am not sure which one to set with this. What reference can I use with this to get by the User Defined error?
'Declare a variable as a FileDialog object.
Dim fd As FileDialog
'Create a FileDialog object as a File Picker dialog box.
Set fd = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
'Declare a variable to contain the path
'of each selected item. Even though the path is a String,
'the variable must be a Variant because For Each...Next
'routines only work with Variants and Objects.
Dim vrtSelectedItem As Variant
'Use a With...End With block to reference the FileDialog object.
'Use the Show method to display the File Picker dialog box and return the user's action.
'The user pressed the action button.
If .Show = -1 Then
'Step through each string in the FileDialogSelectedItems collection.
For Each vrtSelectedItem In .SelectedItems
'vrtSelectedItem is a String that contains the path of each selected item.
'You can use any file I/O functions that you want to work with this path.
'This example simply displays the path in a message box.
MsgBox "The path is: " & vrtSelectedItem
'The user pressed Cancel.
'Set the object variable to Nothing.
Set fd = Nothing
