Default capture file path&name and store in a access DB

Hi everyone,

I would like to capture the filenames and store this in a access table, ideally I would like to capture the whole path+filename for example m:\folder1\subfolder\filename.txt
I want to capture this data (just one file, multiple files are not neccesary) with a filepicker which is activated from a access form.
I found this on the internet but im unable to change the coding so that it work like I described above.

Best regards


visual basic code:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Private Sub Command19_Click()
'Requires reference to Microsoft Office 10.0 Object Library.

   Dim fDialog As Office.FileDialog
   Dim varFile As Variant

   'Clear listbox contents.
   Me.Filelist.RowSource = ""

   'Set up the File Dialog.
   Set fDialog = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
   With fDialog
      'Allow user to make multiple selections in dialog box
      .AllowMultiSelect = True

      'Set the title of the dialog box.
      .Title = "Please select one or more files"

      'Clear out the current filters, and add our own.
       '.Filters.Add "Access Databases", "*.MDB"
      ' .Filters.Add "Access Projects", "*.ADP"
      .Filters.Add "All Txt Files", "*.txt"

      'Show the dialog box. If the .Show method returns True, the
      'user picked at least one file. If the .Show method returns
      'False, the user clicked Cancel.
      If .Show = True Then
         'Loop through each file selected and add it to our list box.
         For Each varFile In .SelectedItems
            Me.Filelist.AddItem varFile
         MsgBox "You clicked Cancel in the file dialog box."
      End If
   End With
End Sub

What trouble are you having adapting the code?
