Browsing to a file folder and selecting a file to import, from an ACCESS FORM.

User is using EXCEL to clean up data from an absolutely horrible, irregular, unpredictable format.
After getting the data into a proper state, they then save that spreadsheet with a new name.  (they need to give it a new name in case they need to come back to it)

I'd like to build some code on an ACCESS FORM that presents the user with the ability to browse to their newly created EXCEL file, and import it into ACCESS.

I've already got the import routine built, but my VBA skills only have it far enough to import the same filename each time.

Thanks for any help.

Wouldn't be easier to work solely on Access...get on the data on Access..have them cleared/manipulated...etc...and only just export to Excel for viewing.
