    Unanswered: How do I link to documents saved as OLE objects in Access

    Hi

    I have a table with word documents stored in it as OLE objects. The table has the fields my_ole and file_name

    How do I list those documents as links on an ASP page so that they can be saved to a user's hard drive?

    I've tried

    <%response.write "<a href='"
    response.write rs("my_ole")
    response.write "'>"
    response.write rs("file_name")
    response.write "</a>" %>

    But without success.


    Thanks

    Gerard

    Re: How do I link to documents saved as OLE objects in Access

    I think we are having similar problems. I am trying to get html links to work on an asp page.

    With the ole objects I have found that for pictures at least, so maybe word files too, you have to enter them in access as text not ole object. This will point to the folder on the server.

    ie images/picture1.gif in the data field in access.

    Have you managed to get any links to work?

    I am assuming you are using dreamweaver?

    Laters

    P.S can you let me know if you crack the link to word documents stuff!

    Do you mean you are just storing the link to the file, with the file itself saved in a separate folder on the server?

    I'm trying to save the word document itself in the database.

    hyperlinks

    I am entering http://www.google.com for example as text in access

    I then try to get this to display as a link via dreamweaver but the closest I can get is for it to try and link in explorer but with #http://www.google.com# showing and no go with the link...

    I figure it out sooner or later!

    Dunno how to save a document in access Im pretty new to it really.
