Does anybody know an easy way to verify a file path?

I have a Db with Part Number and Path to image. I want to verify the path to image is correct.

you can use the dir() function

if dir("P:\Product Images\2013\image.bmp")<> "" then
    msgbox "File Exists"
    else
    msgbox "File Not Found"
end if

Thanks for the help ended up using FSO
    Dim fso As New FileSystemObject
    If FileOrDirExists(OBText) Then
    Rst.Edit
    Rst!OK = "Y"
    Rst.Update
    End If
    Set fso = Nothing

Function is here:
