Browse Button In A MS Access Form?


Below is a pic of the form I'm having trouble with. the poject is a database of golf courses. there is a form for entering/viewing information for each hole for each course. basically each record has a thumbnail pic of the hole.

That browse button needs to do something. It needs to open a browse dialog box, similar to the browse dialog box you get on many other programs. The idea is that the user selects the picture from the browse dialog box and the file name of this picture is put in the PhotoFile field.

I have no idea where to start on this, but I did check out the Northwind database that comes with Access - its similar but has loads of other functions bundled with it that I don't need and doesn't work without these functions.

I'm no programming genius either! so any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Form Browse Button Code
I am designing a form and I need to add a Browse button to it. I need the Browse Button to point to the "My Computer". Once that file is selected I need it to fill in the hyperlink box. I have the hyperlink text box on the form and it works if you manually type a link in. I would like it to auto fill-in with the selected file.

Any help would be great!!

Thank you :)

Browse Button
Hello all:
I'm trying to create a browse button in MS Access. Here is the code I've used so far:

Private Sub ImgBrowse_Click()


Dim OFN As OPENFILENAME
On Error GoTo Err_cmdInsertPic_Click

' Set options for dialog box.
With OFN
.lpstrTitle = "Images"
If Not IsNull([ImageFullPath]) Then .lpstrFile = [ImageFullPath]
.flags = &H1804 ' OFN_FileMustExist + OFN_PathMustExist + OFN_HideReadOnly
.lpstrFilter = MakeFilterString("Image files (*.bmp;*.gif;*.jpg;*.wmf)", "*.bmp;*.gif;*.jpg;*.wmf", _
"All files (*.*)", "*.*")
End With

If OpenDialog(OFN) Then
[ImageFullPath] = OFN.lpstrFile
[ImagePicture].Picture = [ImageFullPath]
SysCmd acSysCmdSetStatus, "Afbeelding: '" & [ImageFullPath] & "'."
End If
Form.Refresh
Exit Sub
Err_cmdInsertPic_Click:
MsgBox Err.Description, vbExclamation
End Sub

and here is what is in my module:

Option Compare Database

Public Type OPENFILENAME
lpstrTitle As String
lpstrFile As String
flags As Long
lpstrFilter As String

End Type

When I attempt to compile it says Sub or function not defined and highlights MakeFilterString. Why is this and how can I fix it? An ideas? Thank you

Search Form, Continue To Browse
I adapted the findform from the address book sample database. After the search is performed I would like it to be able to continue to browse (continue scrolling through) the rest of contacts rather than excluding everything but matches. More like a go to kind of search rather than a select query. I'm betting this is a simple fix (I hope), I just don't know what it would be. Any help?

Help With Posted Browse Code
Hi, all! I really need some help from you geniuses here. I've never worked with modules and my coding from objects is very limited.

I need to create a browse button that will be used to select a file to import into my database, using a command button. I hope this makes sense. I was reading the post:

http://forums.aspfree.com/microsoft-access-help-18/how-to-link-fe-to-be-using-vba-76392.html?&highlight=browse+button

I am so limited in my aptitude for coding that I was totally lost reading this. I think that it is for relinking a database, with a browse functionality. Can anyone help me figure out how to adjust this to work for my needs?

Thanks!

Browse [Find A Directory Or File]
(Referring to this post (http://www.access-programmers.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=75790) by ghudson)


Hi,

This post was very useful, it really helped me out, but I do have one question. My database will be used by multiple users and will be stored on a mapped network drive, just as the files that I want to link to. Now unfortunately not all machines are configured the same, so the same network drive can have different drive letters depending on the machine and this might cause problems. Is there a way to modify the code to get the absolute network path instead of the drive letter?

thx

Hi,

I'm trying to add a control to my form that I don't know how to do.


On my form, I want the user to be able to click a button which will open up the standard file open dialog box. The user then will be able to browse through the appropriate directory and select an image file which will be saved on that specific record.

Attached is a strip down database as an example.

How can I do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated - I'm trying to do this for my work.
