I am using the VBA scripting in Microsoft Excel to write a conversion routine for a client. My client is now wanting to run this conversion on Mac's version of Excel. The conversion crashes when it gets to the 'filedialog' object that I use to allow the user to browse to a file on the computer. Is there a 'Mac Version' of the filedialog object that will do the same thing from withing the Excel Macro?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Oh sorry that I didn't respond. My bad:

The links you provided where helpful. My end solution was to use the MacScript Function to open a file dialogue.
