As far as I can tell, you can't use the VBA Kill statement, as that deletes
files, rather than putting them in the recycle bin.
You can, however, use the SHFileOperation API
Randy Birch has sample code at
However, note that Randy's site is aimed at VB programmers, not Access
programmers. There are significant differences in the controls available on
forms in VB vs. Access. His example uses DirListBox and FileListBox
controls, plus control arrays, none of which are available in Access.
Hopefully you'll be able to figure out from the code what needs to be done
to port the example into Access. If not, post back with whatever problems
