File Name(Word)

It's been 30min and haven't seen my post yet (sorry to
post twice).
Q: How do I get the file name(which is opened) of a
text/doc file if I have the process information of the
application(not epad/word) that opened/ceated the file.
Thanks alot.

John,

You can't do it without doing some very specific coding against the
application that you know is running. If you know that word is running, you
can use the automation objects to access that instance of word and find out
which document is running in that process.

Notepad is a different story however. There is nothing in notepad that
is publically accessible that offers up what file is being worked on. If
you have a file open in notepad, the title of the file is in the toolbar,
but that is it. It does not give you the directory that the file came from.

Hope this helps.

Hello, I am using an ASP that uses a third party active-x control to upload a file to a file server using the ADO Stream Object. It uses the FileSystemObject to create folders and files, which works fine. If the file does not exist, it saves the file (Word.doc), if it does exists, it checks to see if the file is open. If it is open, and another user is trying to save or overwrite the same file, I trap an Error 3002 (document open),...
