File Browser

I'm new to ME and this is possibly a very stupid question....

 

I cannot find a file open dialogue or any means of browsing for a file, selecting it and putting the filename into a variable.

 

I've used a number of other macro programs which all had a file select function.

 

Am I just being dense and missing what is right in front of my eyes?

 

Regards.

Variables - Variable set string - Set value from file

 

And there you can select the correct file.

Hi Thomas

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

However that's not quite what I ment.

 

I want to be able to select any file I choose when the macro runs and not have it coded into the macro itself.

 

I want to....

 

Run Macro.

Choose file from any location.

Precess file.

Save file to any location.

 

I cannot see how to do this. :blink:

Hi n4ken,

 

Try this one:

 

Variable - Variable set string - Set value to file name (prompt)

 

Add a title then if you run the macro you can browsing.

 

I hope I can help you.
