Capturing which button closes the Attachment Management dialog box

I'm using the code in the subroutine below to open the attachment management dialog box.  I have a situation where I want to perform one action if the user attaches a file and another action if the user simply closes the dialog box with the cancel button.  How can I capture whether the dialog was closed using the "Cancel" button or not...???
Private Sub btnOpenDocument_Click()
DoCmd.GoToControl "MyAttachment"
Application.RunCommand (acCmdManageAttachments)
End Sub
 
'MyAttachmet is the name of the Attachment control on the form

I'm not sure you can ... your code does nothing more than show the Attachments dialog box, and then relinquishes control to that dialog.

You could check the Attachment field before and after to see if a new attachment has been inserted.
