This property has no effect on Folder Picker dialog boxes or SaveAs dialog boxes because users should never be able to select multiple files in these types of file dialog boxes.
The following example displays a File Picker dialog box using the FileDialog object and displays each selected file in a message box.
Sub Main() 'Declare a variable as a FileDialog object. Dim fd As FileDialog 'Create a FileDialog object as a File Picker dialog box. Set fd = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker) 'Declare a variable to contain the path 'of each selected item. Even though the path is a String, 'the variable must be a Variant because For Each...Next 'routines only work with Variants and Objects. Dim vrtSelectedItem As Variant 'Use a With...End With block to reference the FileDialog object. With fd 'Allow the selection of multiple files. .AllowMultiSelect = True 'Use the Show method to display the file picker dialog and return the user's action. 'If the user presses the action button... If .Show = -1 Then 'Step through each string in the FileDialogSelectedItems collection. For Each vrtSelectedItem In .SelectedItems 'vrtSelectedItem is a String that contains the path of each selected item. 'You can use any file I/O functions that you want to work with this path. 'This example simply displays the path in a message box. MsgBox "Selected item's path: " & vrtSelectedItem Next 'If the user presses Cancel... Else End If End With 'Set the object variable to Nothing. Set fd = Nothing End Sub
