Confused
I use Paradox as my main database for my website, which is written in ASP, javascript, VBX, SQL and HTML. I have come across a problem though. I created a link:
& SearchAndReplace Order"DOSFileName", "\ACI\DATA\", "" %> ">Buffalo OFFICE DOWNLOAD FILE

this link works correctly, it grabs files from my \DATA folder that match the DOSFILENAME within the Paradox table. However, I am trying to link to another Server that contains the same files only for our 2nd office and i cannot download the files. I mapped the 2nd server to my cpu and called it G: and used the same link
">ROCHESTER OFFICE DOWNLOAD FILE

however, i get this error message: "The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings."
Can anyone help me write a correct link to this server?

thank you, i actually figured out where i went wrong at...i configured everything properly, but when i set up the ftp connection in IIS, i forgot to give it a unique name, i named it the same folder name as the 1st link, so it couldn't find it...i guess it was sore eyes and not being able to find the answer after looking at the screen so long. But what you gave me is the correct path also. Thanks alot. you guys are a big help. finally, i received a message asking how am i using paradox and ftp together, it is rather simple, i create the link to the folder with my paradox database in IIS(Internet Information Server), then I simply do a search and replace for the field name i want to grab, which is a file extension field. (example: fieldname is DOSFILENAME and the record would have something like this
/Data/Paradox/00232125 and the FTP would then know where to grab the file and which one to get because of the unique filenumbers i set...
thanks
