Code will become:

 
Dim o As New OpenFileDialog()
        o.Filter = "Excel Spreadsheets (*.xls;*.xlsx)|*.xls;*.xlsx"
        If o.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
            If o.FileName <> String.Empty Then
                myFiles = Split(o.FileName, vbNullChar)

                txtInputFile.Text = (myFiles(0))
            End If
