Wanted to know if there is a way to open up a word Doc from a Flash Button.
I have tried this

on(Release({
getURL("myworddocument.doc");
}

with no luck.

Any Suggestions......Thanks!

simple syntax error in your code, here is the fixed code and it should work fine...



// following code will open the document in a new browser window
on (release) {
	getURL("myworddocument.doc", "_blank");
}
 
 
 
// following code will open the document in a existing browser window
on (release) {
	getURL("myworddocument.doc", "_self");
}

Open in new window

what are you using..

Flash SWF in browser? or
Flash Projector EXE on local file system

it would be good if you can attach your sample file for review...
