I need to change the filedialog code to reference a cell in my workbook.  I would like to change ChDir = G3, what is the correct syntax.

Public Function Open_FileDialog()
Dim tmpFile

    ChDrive "S:\" 'change the drive also
    ChDir "S:\Corp Accts\Country\Invoices\"

    DoEvents

    tmpFile = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Microsoft Excel Files (.xls),.xls")

    If tmpFile <> False Then
        Workbooks.Open FileName:=tmpFile
    End If
End Function

Open in new window
