I need to open some files which will be stored in a common folder on a local network using my Adobe Form. I googled and found out that, opening such files are not possible in newer versions. If we certify that particular form, then it may be possible to open such files. My form is a dynamic form in which values in the field change. If that is the case, the certification of the form will become invalid or it wont allow us to certify. I tried opening such files by placing them in our development server in which I was successful. But what I need to do is open such files placed in a common folder. Is there anyother way to open such files without using app.launchURL() method?
have you tried the app.openDoc() method?
Thanks for the reply. Thanks for the link too. I was able to open a pdf file using aoo.openDoc() method. Is it possible to open other files such as Word Document, Excel Sheet, etc..? If that is not possible, is there anyother way to open such files?
if you try to open a foreign format with the app.opedDoc() method, Acrobat will convert them into PDF if possible.
In Reader this wont work at all.
