I need the code

Where on this site does it say we are a coding service to do your work for you?

This may help your understanding:

[boilerplate_help_info]

Posting requests for help must be well thought out if you want help quickly and correctly.  Your post did not meet the criteria for quality help. You may get some posts, but are they going to be useful?  Check your post with these checkpoints - what is it [i]you[/i] missed:
[list=1]
[*]Ask a question that can be answered. Do not ask
- What's wrong with my code?
- Why doesn't this work?
- Anything else that does not give us useful information
[*]Post your code.  If we don't know what you did, how can we possibly help?
- Use [b]PROPER FORMATTING[/b] -- see this
- Use CODE Tags so your formatting is preserved.
If we can't follow your code, it's difficult to help. We don't care that you're still working on it. If you want us to read it, it must be readable
[*]Explain what the code is supposed to do.  If we don't know where the target is, how can we help you hit it?
[*]Explain what actually happened! If we don't know where the arrow went when you shot it, how can we tell what went wrong and how far from the target you are?
[*]If you have errors, post them! We can't see your screen.  We can't read your mind. You need to tell us what happened.
[*]Do [b]not[/b] ask for code. We are not a coding service. We will help you fix your code. 
    If anyone posts working code for you, they are a cheater. 
    If you use that code [i]you[/i] are a cheater.
[*]Do [b]not[/b] bore us with how new you are. We can tell by your code.
- Do not apologize. We were all new, and unless you are completely 
  brain dead you will get better.
- Do not ask us to "take it easy on you."
- Do not say "I don't know what's going on." That's obvious since
  you posted for help. Use that time wisely by [b]explaining[/b] as best 
  you can so we can help.
[*][b]Do not post your requirements and nothing else. [/b]We view that as a lazy do-nothing student that wants us to do their work for them. That's cheating and we [i]will[/i] be hard on you.
[*]Do not attach files except when absolutely necessary. Most of us are not going to download file.  Add the information to your post.
[*][b]Do not tell us how urgent it is.[/b] Seriously, for us there is no urgency at all. Many that can help will ignore any URGENT or ASAP requests.
[/list]
Think more about your next post so we don't have to play 20 questions to get the info we need to help you.

Try using the Common Dialog Control. Add the Common Dialog Control Component to your form. Right Click on the Toolbar and choose components and choose the Microsoft Common Dialog Control.

The Common Dialogue control has several different methods for different purposes and is a simplified version of the Win32 SDK API for the Microsoft Common Controls.

"Method Dialog Displayed
ShowOpen Show Open Dialog Box
ShowSave Show Save As Dialog Box
ShowColor Show Color Dialog Box
ShowFont Show Font Dialog Box
ShowPrinter Show Print or Print Options Dialog Box
ShowHelp Invokes the Windows Help Engine (MSDN)"

Private Sub FileOpen_Click()
    CommonDialog1.ShowOpen
End Sub

That should get you started. And here's a link for some further instruction. Using the Common Dialog Control should be one of the skills you should quickly become familiar with to give your application a unified and professional appearance.

and that includes coloring your text RED for no apparent reason.

I only put it red because I want to.

Please stop. We strive for professionalism, not cute.
