Last Modified: 2016-02-11
I'm using the following code to export attachments to a folder on my disk. I would like to modify the code to prompt the user for the save folder.

Private Sub Export_Attachment_Click()
 On Error GoTo Err_SaveImage

 Dim db As DAO.Database
 Dim rsParent As DAO.Recordset2
 Dim rsChild As DAO.Recordset2

 Set db = CurrentDb
 Set rsParent = db.OpenRecordset("select * from tbl_MOU")

  Do Until rsParent.EOF
       Set rsChild = rsParent.Fields("Open ISA_MOU").Value
       If rsChild.RecordCount <> 0 Then
           rsChild.Fields("FileData").SaveToFile ("\\cdc.gov\private\L327\xbn8\Attachments\")
       End If
       Set rsChild = Nothing


Set rsChild = Nothing
Set rsParent = Nothing
 Exit Sub


 If Err = 3839 Then
 MsgBox ("File Already Exists in the Directory!")
 Resume Next

 MsgBox "Some Other Error occured!", Err.Number, Err.Description
 Resume Exit_SaveImage

 End If

End Sub
