Use the HOST command behind the button

HOST('C:\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE F:\');


The location of the EXPLORER.EXE file may vary, depending upon your version of windows.

Hope it helps.

Dear,

You can use GET_FILE_NAME built-in.

For Ex:
DECLARE
  filename VARCHAR2(256); 
BEGIN 
  filename := GET_FILE_NAME(File_Filter=> 'TIFF Files (*.tif)|*.tif|');  
END;



Regards,

Tamzidul Amin.

You can Open any Drive or Specific folder by the following way:

DECLARE
  filename VARCHAR2(256); 
BEGIN 
  filename := GET_FILE_NAME(directory_name => 'D:\');  
END;
