Storing the selected item from a file lookup to a text box field

This solution below worked like it was supposed to.

However, I have been trying to modify the output to store the selected strFilePath into text box data.

I have a form that the user inputs a lot of data which get stored in to text boxes.  The values in the text boxes are used in a Query Update.  I would like to get the strFilePath into a form text box that can be accessed by my query.

What do I need to modify in the following?  I tried storing the strFilePath to a TempVar.



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")
        !RecordID = Me.txtMainID
        !FilePath = strFilePath
        !FileName = strFilename
    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)
        Exit Function
    End If

End With
End Function
