open a user selected file

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to open a standard "open file " window to allow a use to select a file to be used as a resource list.

I am in the process of a large symbol data update.  i want to be able to open a "before update" file and have the user update the file with the newer symbol data base on a resource list created from a selected file.

I don't see the need to create a resource list from all the file in the favorites folder, just one selected by the user.

I could hard code this, but would prefer an file choice just in case this project goes beyond the one set of symbols (which it probably will).

I just cant seem to find an open document procedure/ function anywhere.

I just found that, was hung up with the mask filter, but it's working now

"You don't have to actually open the file -- use BuildResourceListN() "  - that was my plan
