  Old  Visual Basic OpenFileDialog problem

I got a problem with a visual basic script to get OpenFileDialog, to browse a filename
but always getting errors at the second line, something with As Stream.
Maybe you can fix this problem ^_^
(it's in access)

thanks in advance

Private Sub Bladeren_Click()
Dim myStream As Stream = Nothing
    Dim openFileDialog1 As New OpenFileDialog()

    openFileDialog1.InitialDirectory = "N:\"
    openFileDialog1.Filter = "All files (*.*)|*.*"
    openFileDialog1.FilterIndex = 1
    openFileDialog1.RestoreDirectory = True

    If openFileDialog1.ShowDialog() = System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
            myStream = openFileDialog1.OpenFile()
            If (myStream IsNot Nothing) Then
                ' Insert code to read the stream here.
                Voorbeeld = myStream
            End If
        Catch Ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show ("Cannot read file from disk. Original error: " & Ex.Message)
            ' Check this again, since we need to make sure we didn't throw an exception on open.
            If (myStream IsNot Nothing) Then
            End If
        End Try
    End If
End Sub

Stream is too generic. Use FileStream instead. And you might also have to import System.IO.
