I am using a java applet for navigation but it won't let me specify a file:\\ as a link so I need to create a html page that when accessed does nothing more but reroutes me to the file on a lan and opens it up.

What would the html code look like to do this?

Thanks

Or:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META http-equiv="Refresh" Content="0, URL=file:///C|temp/myfile.htm">
</head>
<BODY>
</body>
</html>

but the way I access the LAN file now is \\Usplscs101\dept\TIPM\CA-1THE\EDS-MHS\Default.htm

So how would it work with that.

thanks

Using JavaScript, you must double each backslash, so do this:


<BODY onLoad='location="file:///\\\\Usplscs101\\dept\\TIPM\\CA-1THE\\EDS-MHS\\Default.htm";'>


Using the META tag, I'm not sure.  Try it both ways:

<META http-equiv="Refresh" Content="0, URL=file:///\\\\Usplscs101\\dept\\TIPM\\CA-1THE\\EDS-MHS\\Default.htm">

<META http-equiv="Refresh" Content="0, URL=file:///\\Usplscs101\dept\TIPM\CA-1THE\EDS-MHS\Default.htm">
