Hello experts,
I have a field on a form where shipping tracking numbers are entered. Does anyone know how I could create a button automatically plug that number into the ups or fedex tracking page?

    Accepted Solution

    Goto Fedex or UPS tracking site.. and enter dummy number and extract the URL which is mostly a GET request with tracking number appended to the URL..

    IN your app use this url in @URLOpen command + tracking number

    for fedex:

    PS: This is not a viable method as fedex/ups can change the way their tracking application works and your url method might be obsolete !
