Select File Without Common Dialog 32 or 64 bit Comment from Anne T @ 8/20/2013
I need this solution to get it to work on 64-bit system, so great! But, I'm a novice. Where do I add these lines of code?

Reply from Richard Rost:

I'll be preparing an addendum video to show how to do this. Hang in there.

Select File Without Common Dialog 32 or 64 bit Comment from Richard Rost @ 7/29/2013
ADDENDUM... in this class, I teach you two ways to select a file to be used in your Access database. I cover using the COMMON DIALOG control and DLL. Well, this poses a problem for people using the 64-bit versions of Access 2010 or 2013. Comdlg32 doesn't exist.

So... you can quickly and easily replace the code used to select a file by just adding these four little lines of code to your program:

Dim FO As Object
Set FO = Application.FileDialog(3)
MsgBox "You selected: " & FO.SelectedItems(1)

That's it. Now the path and filename of the file you selected will be in the variable FO.SelectedItems(1) and you can do with it as you please.
