I had this question after viewing MS Access, Browse for file and then copy file path into text box
I have managed to change the code so that I can select an actual file, not just a folder.
However it is only saving the file as text, not as a hyperlink; as when I click on the filepath it is not opening.
This is the code I have used:
Option Compare Database
Private Sub GetFilepath_Click()
'Declare a variable to contain the path
'of each selected item. Even though the path is a String,
'the variable must be a Variant because For Each...Next
'routines only work with Variants and Objects.
Dim vrtSelectedItem As Variant
'Use a With...End With block to reference the FileDialog object.
With Application.FileDialog(3) '3=msoFileDialogFilePicker
'Allow the selection of multiple file.
.AllowMultiSelect = False
.InitialFileName = "O:\PC Die\Technicians\DATABASE - DO NOT DELETE\ModSheets"
'Use the Show method to display the File Picker dialog box and return the user's action.
'The user pressed the action button.
If .Show = -1 Then
'Step through each string in the FileDialogSelectedItems collection
For Each vrtSelectedItem In .SelectedItems
'vrtSelectedItem is a String that contains the path of each selected item.
'You can use any file I/O functions that you want to work with this path.
'This example simply displays the path in a message box.
Me.ModSheet = vrtSelectedItem
'The user pressed Cancel.
