I have a client who is scanning employee vaccination records.  The client wants to store the location of the scanned form to  an immunization record.  How can I code it so when they click a button, a pop-up screen is opened to allow the user to browse for the image/document and save the path to the vaccination record?

Thanks

try this codes

Private Sub cmdAttachFile_Click()
Dim rsFile As DAO.Recordset
Dim strFilePath As String, strFilename As String
strFilePath = fSelectFile()
If strFilePath & "" <> "" Then
strFilename = Mid(strFilePath, InStrRev(strFilePath, "\") + 1)
    With CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblFileAttachments")
        .AddNew
        !RecordID = Me.txtMainID
        !FilePath = strFilePath
        !FileName = strFilename
        .Update
    End With
End If
End Sub

Function fSelectFile()
Dim fd As Object
Set fd = Application.FileDialog(3)
With fd
    .InitialFileName = CurrentProject.Path & "\"
    .AllowMultiSelect = False
    .ButtonName = "Select"
    .InitialView = 2
    .Title = "Select File"

    'display file dialog box
    If .Show Then
          fSelectFile = .SelectedItems(1)
    Else
        Exit Function
    End If

End With
End Function

Thank you

It worked perfectly.  I will just need to tweak the destination a little.
