Theres a way to do this?
Because I need to open a .doc on the computer of the user and then print that document, all of the codes I see of PcSoft always point to the server of the app, and it's not that I want to do.

something like this:
Click on a button
From code I know the name of the doc and the path and then I search on the PC of the user
Execute another desktop app to open the file and then print

click on button
search the path and file of the PC of the user
print the document

I seach everything on PCSoft Documentation but I haven't do the thing I want to do

is it possible?
Best Regards

If you know the exact path, you'll have to this in browser code (not in server code) :

This SHOULD work.. I didn't try it.

Hi François C.

sorry for the late respond

I tried to use the code you provide me and the only thing this code do is open a new tab on the browser, in this case a blank one.

thanks for your help, maybe with the Version of 23 I can solve this problem I hope so for now I will keep searching for the 20ver.

Best Regards
