I am trying to stream a word document stored on a remote server in ASP but "The file could not be loaded" when the code below is executed.
However, if a use a physical path to a file stored on the webserver (C:\docs\ for instance), it will work just fine (of course the same .doc file was put in both folders).
Is there any workaround for this problem ? I bet I am not the first one that tried to do that.
Thanks in advance for input on that
'constant from another file put there
'network path of the folder for the doc file
CONST_DOCPATH = "\\mimas\boss\"
'if i put CONST_DOCPATH = "C:\docs\" it will work just fine
strFile = "1_1_1.doc"
'strFile = "testSETUP.doc"
strPath = CONST_DOCPATH
'response.Write strPath & strFile
'Set the content type to the specific type that you are sending.
Response.Buffer = True
Response.ContentType = "application/msword"
Set objStream = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")
objStream.Type = 1
objStream.LoadFromFile strPath & strFile
Set objStream = Nothing
