    Open documents from Access (2K)

    Hopefully this is a pretty simple question.
    I have a table, TblFile. In this table are files names, and the path of the file on the Computer. So for instance:

    How to remove an Indictment as file name
    P:How toHow to remove an Indictment.doc as Path details.

    My question is how can I code the database to open up the document dependant upon the selection made within a form via a combo box related to TblFile.

    There are different formats of document icluding pdf, pps, doc, xl...........

    See <post:=569,853>post 569,853</post:>. You'd replace "C:Results.txt" with something like Me.cboFile where cboFile is the name of the combo box.
