Joseph, you know I need the exact error message to tell you what the problem is. "I get an error" tells me nothing.

I just checked the link for the ZIP file and it downloaded fine for me.

The code provided is a 32 bit function, so if you're using 64 bit Office then you need to add PtrSafe to it.

Private Declare Function GetOpenFileName Lib "comdlg32.dll" Alias _


Private Declare PtrSafe Function GetOpenFileName Lib "comdlg32.dll" Alias _

It was replaced with the Images TechHelp video. A lot has changed in the 14 years since the Imaging Seminar was released. This is now the preferred way to deal with images. The material in the Seminar is still valid IF you want to store images in your database, which I only recommend for VERY small files in a VERY limited setting. This new method wasn't available 14 years ago.
