Thank you
Hi mikeoe2003,

Good to see you in the forum after a long time. I found the fix for your problem.

Replace the following line:

strFilename = OpenFileDialog1.FileName.ToString

With:

strFilename = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(OpenFileDialog1.FileName.ToString())

And it should work.

Do reply with results.

Thanks & Regards
