Browse to Hyperlink
Posted on 2005-03-28
I tried to do this in Frontpage but have now migrated my site to Dreamweaver. I am building a quotation tracking system. The users input details like quote date, customer etc and input it onto the database (access) via a dreamweaver front end. I have a Coldfusion server running also. The users also type up a formal quote in Microsoft Word and save it on the Shared Drive.
I would like them to link their quote to the Word Document on the share drive using a hyperlink. I.e "please browse to your file" - it will then add it as a hyperlink to the quote record so when another user views the quote, they can click the hyperlink to view the actual Word quote. I see a "file upload" option in Dreamweaver that seems ideal, except I do not want to store the file, only the hyperlink. Hope you can help.
