full path of server

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Im trying to get the path of my file when on a remote server ( so images will link directly to a folder and display in a container)

It works great on my local machine but the calculation

Substitute(GetAsText(Substitute(Get(FilePath);Get(FileName);"")&"datasheet plans/" & Generic_specificdetail::drawing rename & ".pdf");"file:/";"image:/")

now returns "fmnet:/IPAddress/datasheet plans/Office_Storage.pdf"

any ideas and thanks as usual

No ideas for you John, only to re-iterate that that's way FM sees the world...

The "fmnet" path spec forces file references to route through the FM Server application - accordingly they must be .fp7 files.

In order to reference the "local" pdf files then you must specify the "filemac" or "filewin" path spec. Look closely at the path specs when defining a file reference.

If the pdf files are to mounted on another server then the server volume must also be mounted on the local machine first.
