    Opening file location

    hi all,

    i have to open a pdf/doc file using ASP.NET on a button click event. the file path is in a table in d database(MS-ACCESS). how could i import the file path into the syntax

    Response.Writefile();

    I assume the path is a full path, stored in a dataset, and you're doing something to loop through the DS to process each row. If so, you could do like:

    Code:
    foreach (DataRow row in myDataset.Tables["MyTableName"].Rows )
    {
       path=(string)row["MyPathColName"];
       Response.Writefile(path);
    }

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.
