MacOS - NT FileSharing Problems

Hi all,

  I have a MAC sharing a folder in my NT Server using AppleTalk.
So, when I save any file (how QuarkExpress, for example) in this folder, the MacOS knows that this file is a QuarkExpress File but, if I load the file in my Database (In Byte Format using Bynary Large Object(Blob)) and after I unload this Blob to disk, the MacOS doesn´t know the file how a QuarkExpress File.
  I think that I should write any more information on disk in order to inform the MacOS that this is a QuarkExpress valid file.
  So, how do I make this?

  Thanks in advance

Whats happened is this: The information that tells the mac os what kind of file that is has been stripped by the blob format. These bits of information are called Creator and Type code. You can bypass the need for creator and type by opening Quark and from the open menu WITHIN QUARK open the file manually (instead of just double clicking on the file). If that doesnt work there are utilities at www.versiontracker.com that will let you manually REinstate the creator and type codes. Just use the utility to find the creator and type codes for an existing and working quark file and then apply those codes to the document thats not working. The first solution should work fine though.

So, I can´t use the menu WITHIN QUARK. I just double-click on file and it opens.
I need to write, in the NTFS, the file that can be readable and opened by Mac.

I know that I need to write the type and creator code in my file but, how do I make this?

I need a format of the file that, once wrote in NTFS can be read by Mac.

This is urgent...

Thanks

Yes DO use the OPEN menu from WITHIN QUARK. DO NOT double click the file as it doesnt know which app to use to open it with. Open quark, go to the Open menu, select your file. All should be good. Opening the file this way and then saving it after making changes will REINSTATE the creator and type codes.
