The attached code was working fine until I added in some new references
They are attached
I thought I needed Office 11 Refs but as I'm using Office 2007 which is 12 I wonder what ref / change I need to make

I know I can rewrite using the more cumbersome methods but this code was very nice

Thanks in advance

Paul
Private Sub Command18_Click()
   Dim fDialog As Office.FileDialog
   
   Dim varFile As Variant
 
   ' Clear listbox contents.
   Me.TXTFileName = ""
 
   ' Set up the File Dialog.
   Set fDialog = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
 
   With fDialog
 
      ' Allow user to make multiple selections in dialog box
      .AllowMultiSelect = False
            
      ' Set the title of the dialog box.
      .Title = "Please select the file you wish to import"
 
      ' Clear out the current filters, and add our own.
      .Filters.Clear
      .Filters.Add "Excel Files", "*.XLS"
      .Filters.Add "All Files", "*.*"
 
      ' Show the dialog box. If the .Show method returns True, the
      ' user picked at least one file. If the .Show method returns
      ' False, the user clicked Cancel.
      If .Show = True Then
 
         'Loop through each file selected and add it to our list box.
         For Each varFile In .SelectedItems
            Me.TXTFileName = varFile
         Next
      Else
         MsgBox "You clicked Cancel in the file dialog box."
      End If
   End With
End Sub

So what is the exact problem when u say it doesnt work?
that code looks fine to me

add

option explicit

on the top of your code module

then do a Debug/Compile to check of anything is wrong with that code in your environment

I believe this has changed in Office2007.
I think you now do :
Application.FileDialog   (literally 'Application', not the name of the application)
rather than
Office.FileDialog

I don't think you need the Office12 reference (unless you need it for other things)

Guys
Sorry - The application wouldn't Compile

It was conincidental that I had added additional references in

used the /decompile on the command line and the application then works
