I have designed a basic webpage using html. It is saved in the client's shared area on our production floor. I need to open a folder via link from one of the pages. The required folder is in the local system say 'C:\dir\folder' and the webpage resides in the shared area. How should I need to point the folder from shared area to local system. From google I've tried
<A HREF="file://///Computer_name/Shared_Drive_name/Path/Filename.odt" TARGET="_blank">link to a file</A> with not much luck. I'm able to open objects from local system to client's shared area but the reverse is not happening. The folder which is need to open is in 'C' drive, I've tried something like this: <A HREF="file://///Computer_name//C:/dir/folder" TARGET="_blank">link to a file</A> which is not working.
Do you any other options/suggestions. Greatly appreciated.
We use IE7.
Thanks in advance.
