    Using OpenDialog, is there a way of selecting and bringing back the name of more than one file at a time? Or will I have to mock up my own ODiag type form to do the job?

    Also, can the button labels in the OD form be change. EG. If I want to select a file to be deleted, clicking a button that says "Open" doesn't seem quite right....something like "Select" or "Delete" is more appropriate.

    Thanks yet again.

    On the desktop you can use OpenDialogEx (from the DesktopOnly library).
    It supports multiple files selection.

    It is not possible (without creating a customized library) to change the button's text.

    Did you "mock up my own ODiag type form"? I'm thinking of writing a snippet of code using FilesEx to get an array of file names (from a single directory) that matches a wild-card pattern into a Table control and letting the user mark which ones in the Table are to be selected...
