File Open Dialog Boxes Without Active X Controls

Code assembled by Chris Shepherd from Various Microsoft Sources

The database below has one module, which contains all the functions you require to show a file open dialog box without using the commondialog activex control. This is usefull if you have restrictions on your network stopping you from using custom activex controls, but would like a familiar interface for the endusers. There is one form in the database which has three examples showing how to use the file function.

Database file (about 150k) FileFunctions97.mdb   or FileFunctions2000.mdb
