Except that it assumes that IE is the default browser. And at home,
where my firewall is configured to BLOCK IE, it would probably get you
nowhere.

I'm not sure of the syntax, but something like

     CALL WIN.PCRUN(URL)

should fire up the url in the default browser. There were reports on
u2-users a couple of weeks back that this sort of thing (executing a
document) does work fine.

Cheers,
Wol

If running Wintegrate this databasic command works:

    CALL WIN.PCRUN("IEXPLORE.EXE", URL)

where URL could be any web address. I use it often to retrieve shipping
from
UPS.com or hooking map sites to dispatching screens.

my 1 cent. can't help you on topic 2 unless you post the report as HTML
to a
PC file and have the URL be the file reference.

In fact, here's a sub to hook to any cust maint.

001     SUBROUTINE MAP01(ADDR, ZIP)
002 ***
003 * TO INSTANTIATE THE BROWSER FOR INTERNET FOR THIS URL
004 * MAJ 121002
005 ***
006     CONVERT " " TO "+" IN ADDR
007     CONVERT " " TO "+" IN ZIP
008     PROG="C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"
009
URL="http://maps.yahoo.com/py/maps.py?BFCat=&Pyt=Tmap&newFL=Use+Address
    +Below&addr=":ADDR:"&csz=":ZIP:"&Country=us&Get%A0Map=Get+Map"
010     CALL WIN.PCRUN(PROG, URL)
011     RETURN
012     END

I see that you are in AU so adjust the URL in this example for the
appropriate country. I just go to the yahoo map page with an address and
cut/paste that url into MV and fixup.

Happy April 1. It's still yesterday here.
