If the webserver is delivering the doc you need the path relative to the
document, not the server file system.

If the word doc is off the web root I think

<a href="get_doc.php?doc=proc1.doc">Procedure</a>

and get_doc.php is

(assuming linux file system)


include ('/ebmnw01/vol1/docs/proc1.doc')

Subject: [PHP-DB] Pull Word Docs


I'm trying to use the following

echo "<a href=\"".$myrow[parts_proc]."\">Procedure</a>";

where parts_proc contains the document path //ebmnw01/vol1/docs/proc1.doc

In Internet Explorer it pulls the document correctly but in Mozilla it tries
http:\\\works\//ebmnw01/vol1/docs/proc1.doc is there another
way to represent the document path?
