CFIndex problem

Hi

I have the following tag in my form:

<CFINDEX COLLECTION="Applicant_Temp_2002"
  ACTION="Refresh"
  TYPE="Path"
  Extensions=".pdf,.doc,.rtf,.htm,.html,.txt">

When I run the form I get the following error:

Error occurred in tag CFINDEX

Error during SetCurrentDirectory

The error occurred while processing an element with a general identifier of (CFINDEX), occupying document position (8:1) to (12:46) in the template file C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\apsintranet\searchcoll.cfm.

I have tried using a fully qualified path for the Collection parameter, but I get the unhelpful message of an "unknown error in CFINDEX"

Any ideas?

John

You can also try using the URLPath parameter:

<CFINDEX COLLECTION="Applicant_Temp_2002"
 ACTION="Refresh"
 TYPE="Path"
 URLpath = "http://127.0.0.1/myfolder/"
 Extensions=".pdf,.doc,.rtf,.htm,.html,.txt">

Thanks for the replies:

URLPath doesn't make any difference.

TYPE="File" removes the error, but it has not refreshed the collection  What now?

Try using the KEY attribute and changing the value to the path of the directory that stores the collection Applicant_Temp_2002

=== START CODE EXAMPLE ===
<CFINDEX ACTION="Refresh"
     COLLECTION="Applicant_Temp_2002"
     KEY="C:\CFusion\Verity\Collections\Applicant_Temp_2002"
     TYPE="Path"
     Extensions=".pdf,.doc,.rtf,.htm,.html,.txt">
=== END CODE EXAMPLE ===

I tried again with the UNC path in the KEY parameter.  It now works.

Thanks!
