Hi,

I'm looking at adding a burn files to CD option in my MS Access database.  My database includes the path to the folder with the files which need to be burned to the CD.

The code I have found is below, however, it doesnt seem to work.  It errors out at :

strDriveLetter = Application.InputBox("Driveletter : ", "Driveletter", "D", Type:=2) & ":\"  

Can anyone help?

Sub burn_a_cd() 
     'Provide the drive letter of your CD burner
    strDriveLetter = Application.InputBox("Driveletter : ", "Driveletter", "D", Type:=2) & ":\" 
     'Provide the source directory. We made one on the c drive
     'and everything we put in this directory will be put on a cd
    strSourceDirectory = "C:\TOBURN" 
     'Provide a volume name for your CD (16 characters max)
    strCDName = Date 
    Const MY_COMPUTER = &H11 
    Set WShshell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application") 
    strBurnDirectory = WShshell.RegRead( _ 
    "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\" _ 
    & "Explorer\Shell Folders\CD Burning") 
    Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(strSourceDirectory) 
    objShell.Namespace(strBurnDirectory).CopyHere objFolder.Items 
    objShell.Namespace(&H11&).ParseName(strDriveLetter).InvokeVerbEx ( _ 
    "Write &these files to CD") 
End Sub

This should do:

strDriveLetter = InputBox("Driveletter: ", "Driveletter", "D") & ":\"
