Here is my standard code for this purpose:
Private Sub cmdDocsPath_Click()
'Created by Helen Feddema 28-Nov-2005
'Modified by Helen Feddema 29-Sep-2008

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
   
   'Create a FileDialog object as a Folder Picker dialog box.
   Set fd = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFolderPicker)
   Set txt = Me![txtDocsPath]
   
   With fd
      .Title = "Browse for folder where __________"
      .ButtonName = "Select"
      .InitialView = msoFileDialogViewDetails
      '.InitialFileName = strPath
      If .Show = -1 Then
         strPath = CStr(fd.SelectedItems.Item(1))
         txt.Value = strPath
         strPropertyName = "DocumentsPath"
         strPropertyValue = strPath & "\"
         lngDataType = dbText
         Call SetProperty(strPropertyName, lngDataType, _
            strPropertyValue)
      Else
         Debug.Print "User pressed Cancel"
      End If
   End With

On Error Resume Next

   DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
   
ErrorHandlerExit:
   Exit Sub

ErrorHandler:
   MsgBox "Error No: " & Err.Number _
      & " in " & Me.ActiveControl.Name & " procedure; " _
      & "Description: " & Err.Description
   Resume ErrorHandlerExit

End Sub
