in access 2016 - open a browser aand select a file, the path shuld be saved in a field

in access 2016 - I would like to create a button that upon clicking it, it will open the list of files allowing me to select the desired file, and at the same time, the system will insert the file location path into the field.
It should not run the file like a hyperlink button.
