ms/access 2013 open external file
Posted on 2015-02-04
I need to open an external file in MS/ACCESS 2013. The user needs to brows on the computer, opened the file (a standard ms/office file e.g. word, excel, ppt) or a PDF / picture and, upon selection, I need to change its name and store in a common folder, albeit keeping its extension for further opening.
Ideally this should be embedded in a control, but its OK to open on a separate window, as long as I get the full path for the file to store it on a database record.
how do I do it?
