I have a page where I have alot of hyperlinks to Excel files.  The files are all in the same location but are saved each day as different name according to the date it was created.  What I want to achive is that on my page i'll have 3 Textboxes and a submit button. The files that I want to link to looks something like this. C:\Emn01\Flash\Flash_15_03_00.xls. Now every day as I said, a new file is created the "_15_03_00" indicates the following Day,Month,Year. The textboxes on my form are also Day,Month,Year. The moment I insert data in the textboxes and click the submit button it must then link to the date according to the data I inserted in the text boxes. E.G. If I inserted 17 in the Day textbox, 04 in the Month Text Box and 99 in the Year text box and then click the Submit button I should be directed to "C:\Emn01\Flash\Flash_17_04_99.xls".

Try this:

..
..
<script language="javascript">
<!--
function checkit() {
 idForm = document.myform
 sTmp =  "C:\Emn01\Flash\Flash"
 sTmp += "_" + idForm.myday.value
 sTmp += "_" + idForm.mymonth.value
 sTmp += "_" + idForm.myyear.value + ".xls"
 idForm.action = sTmp
 return true
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<html>
<form name="myform" onsubmit="return(checkit())">
 <input type="text" size="2" name="myday"><br>
 <input type="text" size="2" name="mymonth"><br>
 <input type="text" size="4" name="myyear"><br>
 <input type="submit">
</form>

Try this other script, it works for me:

---------- 8< ------- 8< ----------
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0">
<script language="javascript">
<!--
function checkit() {
 idForm = document.myform
 sTmp =  "file:///C|/Emn01/Flash/Flash"
 sTmp += "_" + idForm.myday.value
 sTmp += "_" + idForm.mymonth.value
 sTmp += "_" + idForm.myyear.value + ".xls"
 alert("Downloading file: " + sTmp)
 idForm.action = sTmp
 return true
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<html>
<form name="myform" action="" method ="get" onsubmit="return(checkit())">
 <input type="text" size="2" name="myday"><br>
 <input type="text" size="2" name="mymonth"><br>
 <input type="text" size="4" name="myyear"><br>
 <input type="submit">
</form>
</BODY>
</HTML>
------------- 8< --------- 8< --------
