Find a file

P: n/a
Hi,

I want something simple, but haven't managed to find out how to do
it...

I have written some help files in html for an access application. I
would like access to be able to find where iexplore is on each system
(the database is on an a network).

I could put a copy of iexplore on the network of course...

Thanks

I am not sure why you need the location of iexpaloe?

you can launch any file, be it a excel file, pdf file etc by going:
application.FollowHyperlink "path name to your doc"

So, to open a pdf file (and launch the pdf reader, you can go):

application.FollowHyperlink "c:\my documentionat\Chapter1.pdf"

And, if you got html, then just go:

application.FollowHyperlink "c:\my documentionat\Chapter1.html"

If you use the above, you can open any application doucment, and not care
about the the location of iexplore (or excel, or the pdf viewer for that
matter).
