Command button not taking user to proper path

On a form I have a command button that when clicked is supposed to take the user to...

B:\Dropbox\Business Documents\Database\Database Images

It isn't doing this.  Here is the code.  Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Private Sub cmdAdd_Click()
' User asked to add a new photo
Dim strPath As String

    ' Grab a copy of the Office file dialog
    With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
        ' Select only one file
        .AllowMultiSelect = False
        ' Set the dialog title
        .Title = "Locate the image file"
        ' Set the button caption
        .ButtonName = "Choose"
        ' Make sure the filter list is clear
        .Filters.Clear
        ' Add two filters
        .Filters.Add "JPEGs", "*.jpg"
        '.Filters.Add "Bitmaps", "*.bmp"
        ' Set the filter index to 2
        .FilterIndex = 2
        ' Set the initial path name
        
        .InitialFileName = "B:\Dropbox\Business Documents\Database\Database Images\"
        
        
        ' Show files as thumbnails
        .InitialView = msoFileDialogViewThumbnail
        ' Show the dialog and test the return
        If .Show = 0 Then
            ' Didn't pick a file - bail
            Exit Sub
        End If
        ' Should be only one filename - grab it
        strPath = Trim(.SelectedItems(1))
                ' Set an error trap
        On Error Resume Next
        ' Set the image
        Me.txtImage = strPath
        ' Set the message in case Image control couldn't find it
        Me.lblMsg.Caption = "Failed to load the picture you selected." & _
            "  Click Add to try again."
    End With
    ' Put focus in a safe place
    Me.cmdCloseForm.SetFocus

End Sub

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Back in the old days, the B: drive was a floppy disk drive.  What is it on your computer?

Hard to believe but "B" is the hard drive on the computer.

Works for me as written, using a directory that exists on my own computer.  (Access 2010/Windows 7)

Double-check the path for spelling accuracy, spaces, etc and also verify that you have the needed permissions set on that folder.

Also take a look at this KB article for details about .InitialFileName:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/aa210656(v=office.11).aspx

If the specified value is invalid (typos, etc), the folder will default to the last used.  There also is a maximum length of 256 characters specified for valid file names.  The one you have posted is well within that limit, but just worth noting in case you are using longer file names in your production environment.
