I have a program that saves client files for us. there is an "Open" button that displays a listbox populated with the names of the client files in a specific folder. The code I am using to display the file names is this:

Code:
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

Dim strLoad As String
Me.boxApps.Clear
strLoad = Dir("G:\Stuff\Lender Ins Files\Umbrella Renewal Apps\Saved Apps\*.xlsm")
Do While strLoad > vbNullString
   Me.boxApps.AddItem strLoad
   strLoad = Dir
Loop

End Sub

I want the user to be able to select the client file and then click a "View App" button to open the selected file. Is there any way to do this?
