Creating links to external files
Posted on 2003-03-22
In one application i want to be able to link to files from within a Notes doc. Since i don't have browser capabilities on that external drives , i use the file:///P:drive protocol instead of the http protocol.
Only now i want an easy way to create automatically URL links to those external files. It wouldn't be a problem for http protocol since Notes automatically converts it to a URL link , that isn't the case for a file:/// link.
I can create a URL link manually using file:/// and it works ok. Although i would want to generate it through formula or scripting. Generally : is it possible to create Hotspots automatically , ie without the user has to create it manually ?
Any clues ?
