I am trying to do very basic stuff of having a link to external (network shared) file (One excel and another MS access file). My local machine has access to those files.
I am using following tag HyperLink but i am not able to open the file successfully.
Somehow i felt that this was very basic thing but i am not able to make it work.
Has anybody successfully link networked shared file in their adf application
(I am testing this from my local jdev and i have access to these file from my machine. I am using Jdev 188.8.131.52)
Thanks Frank for your prompt answer. Thats a first big help.... i shouldn't be using file:/// in front of network file path...
Any suggestion about linking to network shared file.
(after doing several file uploads and downloads..... its really odd that i can't make this simple thing work....)
Mount the shared network drive from the server machine running your ADF application using SMB/CIFS. The exact details depend on the server OS, you should be able to find instructions with Google.
