Hi All,

I have a problem with "Open URL" when I connect to my DB using open remote file.

What I did is made a file (Table::File_Path). Now when I click a button"Open URL" that will point to the file_path Field and open a .jpg document.

It worked fine locally, but when I Turned on the sharing and connect the other PC using remote, the Open URL do not work anymore.

Is there other way that I can open .jpg files that resides in the host PC. Or can anyone suggest of a script to do this.

I wanted to post my file but its big.

Thanks in advance. again newbie forever

I already Solved my problem, Thanks all for viewing

Answer to my problem:

I mapped the folder for the pictures and I used "Open URL" to open the file. Files will be opened by a Picture viewer on the client PC. Needed For quick viewing and printing of document.

Host mac osx(running filemaker8 and hosting picture douments)

Client PC win: map Drive (H:)

So, File path must be (file:/H:/xxxx.jpg) on table::file_path
