I want to access a document library in sharepoint through windows explorer.
I can go into "My Networkl Places" and use "Add a Network Place" to create a link to the document library... the link is of the form ...
After the wizard completes, I am left with a shortcut to the webfolder, however the format is somehow changed toa unc version...
This is extremely frustrating.
If I am to open up Microsoft word 2007 and select File/Save as , then select "My Network Places" on the left side of the save box... then I double click my web folder (the one in unc format) ... this somehow creates a new web folder for me that is the correct http://
path that I was trying to create originally.
Then when I open this I get the real "Web Folders" folder that I can use to create all of my webfolders correctly.
I assume I am doing something in the wrong order as this seems very odd - and pointers would be appreciated.
