Hi!
I need a sql query or a VBA code (I work in Acess) to read all the .doc files from a folder, when I click a button. I have a folder (c:\docs) and in this folder I have .doc files. I also have a table ( table1) with filds ID, document (type: OLE Object). I want a sql query or a vba code to read all the documents name from the folder and then import all the document in the table.

Thank you!

myfl = Dir("C:\docs\*.doc")

Do While myfl <> ""
docfile =  "C:\docs\" & myfl
<insert into database part>


myfl = Dir

Loop
