Hi All,
I need an 'Open' icon in a new tab that defaults to a specific folder.
I have done the Tab and Group ('Open') but do not know how to set the default folder to open.
Is there a property, or should I approach this some other way?
thank you

Solved myself.
wrote Documents.Open code (defaulting to requisite path) and using Application.FileDialog, (saving code in Normal/modules) and placed macro into a new group on toolbar.
