I want a page when entered a id it searched that id in the mentioned UNC or drive and opens the html page.

Sharath

Sharath,

Will this be running locally just on your PC, or published to the web and to run on a server? The only reason I ask is if you will not be running it locally and will be uploaded it to a web server, you will need some server-side code (ASP, PHP etc.) to achieve this.

Change
Msgbox Join(Location,vbCr)

to loop over Location's

Something like

Dim text
For Each item In Location
    text = text &  "<br /><a href='" & item & "'>" & item &"</a>"
Next
document.getElementById('output').innerHTML=text

and have a div id="output" somewhere

Sharath,

This is ASP code which you can put in an ASP file and save to your Intranet. If no path is provided then it will show a form for you to input the first part of the file name, and then it will take you to a list of all the files which match in the specified directory. You'll need to provide the name of the directory on line 4.

<%@ Language="VBScript" %>
<%
Dim fso: Set fso = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
Dim objFolder: Set objFolder = fso.GetFolder("C:\documents") 'Path to documents folder
Dim strURL: strURL = CStr(Request.QueryString("path"))
 
If strURL = "" Then
	Response.Write "<form action='" & Request.ServerVariables("URL") & "' method='get'>" & _
		"Search for Files beginning with the text: <input type='text' name='path' value='' />" & _
		"<input type='submit' value='GO >>>' /></form>"
	Response.End
Else
	
	Dim filematches()
	intArrMax = 0
	
	for each objFile in objFolder.Files
		If (Left(LCase(objFile.Name),Len(strURL)) = LCase(strURL)) Then
			redim preserve filematches(intArrMax)
			filematches(intArrMax) = objFile.Name
			intArrMax = intArrMax + 1
		End if
	next
	
	' Show all the matches
	Response.Write "Matches found:<br />"
	For i = 0 To UBound(filematches) Step 1
		
		Response.Write "<a href='" & objFolder.Path & "\" & filematches(i) & "'>" & filematches(i) & "</a>"
		
	Next
	
End If
%>

Put it into a Notepad page, then go to File, Save As. You have to type the filename as "filename.asp", with the quote marks and .asp on the end.

You will also need to execute the script on an IIS Server. This means it has to go into C:\Inetpub\wwwroot (once IIS is installed), and then you would go to http://<your computer's IP address>/filename.asp to access it.

Matthew.

Matthew i get this
HTTP Error 404.3 - Not Found
The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the extension configuration. If the page is a script, add a handler. If the file should be downloaded, add a MIME map.

When i tried to browse to the asp.

Normally I would save such a script as .hta and not serve it from a web server but directly from a hard disc

The only reason I suggest this be saved as an ASP page is because as mentioned it will be part of a company intranet.

With regards to the IIS problem, you definitely need to browse to the file using http://computername/search.asp (or you could use http://127.0.0.1/search.asp from your own PC). When you installed IIS on your Vista machine in Add/Remove Windows Features, did you check the box 'ASP' under 'World Wide Web Services'?
