Creating a command button to open up a file listed in a textbox?

Guest

What would the code be for a command button to open up the file that is in a
text box location. For example, lets say i have a text box called "file
location" i want it that when i click on the command button, it will luanch
the file listed in that text box. Each record will have a diffrent file.
Also is there a way for me to do this "be able to launch the file" while in
datasheet view?
Also is there a way that i can have an "open" type box appear for me to
select the file, rather then me having to type the whole thing in manually?

Regarding launching the file from Access, there are different ways you can
do this depending on the exact type of file.

Thank you. But I have multiple records, if i do it like in the first way, it
places it in all of the records. I want it to place it only in that record
location, and also for it to save it, so later on i can view it. and
regarding opening it, they will mostly be media files. basically i am
creating a databse to keep track of my media files. and i want to save the
locations of dioffrent ones, then click "open" to run them.

thankx
