Hello
I am trying to open a excel file from access 2010 file. This code is not working as its giving errors.

Option Compare Database
Sub b()

Dim fDialog As FileDialog
Dim varFile As Variant
Dim FilePath As String
Dim FileName As String
Dim fs As Object
Dim SavePath As String
Dim OpenFile As Variant
Set fs = Interaction.CreateObject("Scripting.FilesystemObject")
'Declare SavePath for Documents
SavePath = "\\Path\to\share\Directory\"

'Set up the File Dialog
Set fDialog = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)

With fDialog
'Do not Allow user to select multiple files
.AllowMultiSelect = False

'Set the title of the Dialog box
.Title = "Please select the file you want to move"

'Clear our the current filters and add our own
.Filters.Clear

'Show the Dialog box. If the .Show method returns True, the
'user picked a file. If the .Show method returns
'False, the user clicked cancel.
If .Show = True Then
'Display what file the user picked
For Each varFile In .SelectedItems
Me.DocumentLocation.Value = SavePath
'Copy the File to the Share
fs.Copyfile varFile, SavePath
MsgBox ("The file you selected is - " & varFile)

Set fs = Nothing

Next
'The User Pressed the Cancel button
Else
MsgBox ("You clicked cancel!")
End If
End With

End Sub


What change do I need to do to make this work or any other alternatives you may suggest.

The error is: "User-defined type not defined."
You need to set a reference to the Microsoft Office library

Also the code appears to be looking for PDF files instead of Excel fines (Line 30)

go to this folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE14

and see if you have the file MSO.dll
