Hello all.  How do I do this?

I have a computer on the network that has an application that creates PDF documents and stores it to a folder out on the C Drive of that machine.  I have the browse to the path and then it saves the path into a database like so "C:\PDFFILES\".   What is the best way to setup a share on this and then in the database where I have to browse to the path set the path to the files to allow other computers on the network to open the files from that folder.  Not sure if I can use UNC path when I have to browse or not.

the easiest way is to share the folder (from the local machine that host c:\PDFFILES)
give it a name like pdffiles
then from the "client machine" go to a dos prompt and type
net use X: \\servername\pdffiles
where servername is the name of the machine hosting the pdffile directory and pdffiles is the name of the share (that you gave it)
