As requested I entered your code in the message box..
It popped up the file dialog as expected and when I selected an
existing file using the mouse, it gave me the "replace file?" prompt,
then returned the following in the message box:

C:/Users/david/Desktop/sample project/testme.txt

Which is correct for the file chosen.

Still running behind and haven't had a chance to try the code you and
Peter cooked up. (Thanks Peter)

Best regards,
David C.
