Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

This will allow you to select a file and put its path in the active cell:

Code:
Sub Test()
    Dim FPath As Variant
    FPath = Application.GetOpenFilename("Excel Files (*.xls), *.xls", 1, "Select a File", , False)
    If FPath = False Then Exit Sub
    ActiveCell.Value = FPath
End Sub
