I'm totally confused here!!! crazy.gif" border="0

I'm getting a "Format File Not Found - The format file "search.htm" could not be found" message and the file does exist in the same directory as the default.htm webpage calling the database. What gives? Is anyone familiar with this problem???

Here is the CDML code I'm using ...

<A HREF="http://162.49.66.42:591/web/007%20racing/FMPro?-db=007%20Racing&-lay=game_main&-format=search.htm&-view">

Hi, that's right, Filemaker URL's start from within the web folder as 'root' so you don't include '/web' in the url - but I think you'll still need the '007%20racing' directory path though.

regards, Jeff

ps: this stuff is easier to write if you try never to use spaces in file, field,layout or directory names - saves all those %20s

Thanks for the input guys. I've "somewhat" fixed my problem. I added /web/007%20racing/ to the search.htm parameter and it worked fine.

Now, get this ... I tried to do the same from another htm file called search.htm and it will not find the darn search_results.htm file and it's in the same *$@ folder!!!

Oh, ... I think I need a tall Guinness!!!!!
