    How do you get one of those screens to pop up which allows you to save a file and navigate around windows folders to do so.

    Also how to you get the open a file screen.

    You have OpenFileDialog and SaveFileDialog which help you doing that.

    I cannot find any information about how to use this with my VisualBasic 6 (it has no help files), can someone please help.
    from what I understand OpenFileDialog returns the entire path of the location that you select.
    but my code doesnt seem to do anything.

    'This does nothing
    FName = OpenFileDialog

    'This gives me an error
    FName = OpenFileDialog()

    I though you would be using the .NET but VB 6 there is a control for the same.

    Ok when i click cancel in the open file dialogue i want to execute a command. But by using
    "on error goto cancel" the code in Cancel wont execute one i have executed the loaded a file once. in fact crazy things start to happen. is there any sort of "On cancel exit sub" or something, this is the outline of my code

    Private Sub cmdLoad_Click()

    On Error GoTo Cancel
    ...
    Exit Sub

    Cancel:
    ...
    Exit Sub

    End Sub

    thank you for your time

    nevermind i needed to click the "cancel error" box in the properties of the dialogue box. Apparently without that it wont always give an error.
