It looks to me like (interactive "G...") can not be used to choose a

It works for me. Can you please explain in more detail what happens
when you run the following code:

(defun test (filename) "testing"
  (interactive "GFile")
  (message filename))

(define-key menu-bar-file-menu [test]
  '(menu-item "Test" test :help "Testing"))

Thanks for responding, Jason. Sorry, I should have written "can not be used to choose a directory name". I can choose a file but not a directory. Should not that be possible with "G"?
