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
