Hello all,
I have this question, is there a way to populate a combo box with the names of files in a folder (aka *.pdf) select that name , have a command to open that .pdf file.
Also is it possible to have a function to save the files path to a table each time there is a new file, lets says with a refresh button or something.
I'm just looking at options and some guidance.

thanks a million in advance.

Maybe something from the Wiki could help you get started. For example: GetDirContents

Hope it helps...
