Hey all, did a search for this and didnt find the info I needed... Heres what I'm looking for information on.
I'm building a flash utility for my job. What i'd like it to do is this...
One example is I will have 2 drop down lists, one with 2 letter combos, one with number combos. The user will pick these from the list based on what a System ID on our Machines are labeled.
What I want flash to do is that once you click the "Open" button, Flash will open "driveletter:\folder\folder\dropdown1dropdown2.doc "
I think I can get the code written up to do that. The main reason I'm posting is i'm wondering if word docs can be directly opened from a hard drive using flash without the use of a plugin. I know you can if the word doc is posted via the web...but these docs will be constantly changing and stored on a network drive, so I dont want to go that route. I'm hoping this can be done because while it wouldnt do a whole lot, it would cut some of the time it takes me to locate log files for administration purposes and things of that nature. I am horrible at explaining things, so please let me know if I wasnt clear on what I'm out to do. Thanks in advance for any help!
