    Prompt user to select an existing .txt file on their computer

    jpags98 Level 1

      I am working on a script that is trying to read files (in .txt format) and manipulate them. I am trying to prompt the user to find and select an existing file on their computer. How can I write the code in such a way that triggers a pop up file explorer window (compatible with Adobe Acrobat DC)? I want the user to be able to find any document instead of dictating the file name or file location within the script. Once this is achieved, I would set the file name to a string variable called fileName. I am unsure where to begin with this process, so any help would be greatly appreciated. If there is an easier or more efficient method of achieving this goal please feel free to share. Thank you.
