Selecting a file to open

SettunSettun Posts: 8Member
Okay, I know how to specify a given file to open for reading in data from within the program. For example

Const Fdata$:='C:DataRecords.dat';

What I'm attempting to do is allow the user of the program to browse through their hard drive and the program to then obtain the path and name of file based on the users selection.

In basic I could use Z$=Files$(1)
I need an equivalent function/ability inside of pascal.

Thanks in advance
