starting media player from an AccessXP form

P: 1
Hello,
I need to open a media player window so that i have the controls, from a form ideally, the user would push a button and the player would open tot eh correct file.

one other thing i need is top be able to pass the location of the file to the media player. if i use a macro and hard code my file location the command line looks like this:
"c:\program files\windows media player\wmplayer.exe" "http:\\www2.mountinsight.com\verb\v06a\a06\a06138 42.wav" (all on one line of course)

Each record' s path varies after the "...\verb\"

how can this be done?

You will have to see if there is an AciveX control available for Windows media player. Check the ActiveX list and see if there is anything there.
