Michael, If I remember correctly, typing a string such as \d in a Frame dialog box is a way of typing a special character, in this case the dagger character.
I believe the way to put the directory separator in is to use the unix-style /, ie a forward slash like this: message openfile "W:/Schadstoffliteratur/Dioxine/Attempt to establish benchmarks for Dioxins.pdf" Hope this helps, Phil Heron Technical Writer - CODA -----Original Message----- From: framers-bounces at lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-boun...@lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of Michael B?hme Sent: 23 September 2008 11:59 To: framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: How to prevent Framemaker changing the Link Hallo, I have a Problem which has hopefully an easy solution. I try to make Hyperlinks to open an other PDF on my harddisk. I write: message openfile "W:\Schadstoffliteratur\Dioxine\Attempt to establish benchmarks for Dioxins.pdf" Than Framemaker convert this to: message openfile "W:\Schadstoffliteratur?ioxine\Attempt to establish benchmarks for Dioxins.pdf" Looking in the MIF I see the following: <MText `message openfile "W:\\Schadstoffliteratur???ioxine\\Attempt to establish benchmarks for Dioxins.pdf"'> The resulting Link does not work, of course. When I repair the link in the MIF manually, open it in FM, print to PDF, it works fine: <MText `message openfile "W:\\ElbeSchadstoffliteratur\\Dioxine\\Attempt to establish benchmarks for Dioxins.pdf"'> But I may not touch the Link in Framemaker again. I want to make hundreds of similar Links, so I am looking for a solution. How to prevent Framemaker changing the Link?
