Don't think it is doable as this dialog box is build in access.

On the other hand, you can make a form that will behav exactly like it.

Personally, I just never add attachments to my Access databases, I always store those files on a file server and only store the pointer to the file in Access.  Attachments rapidly eat up the very limited amount of space accessible in an Access database.
