Which version of Director are you using?
I would suggest using an xtra like Buddy API or FileXtra4 (depending on
your answer to the above question) and using them to run an "open"
command on the full path to an Excel file that you pass to the xtra's
method. For example, using Buddy API:
on mouseUp me
-- assuming you have a document named "document.xls"
-- in a folder named "Excel" located next to the movie file that
executes this command:
OK = baOpenFile("@/Excel/document.xls", "normal")
if OK < 32 then
-- an error occurred, check the BudAPI docs for numbers and their
alert "Error opening document:" && OK
We're using Director 11. Which add-on should I look at?
So I will need to purchase an add-on. I can't open a file from director without one?
What about using FileIO and OpenFile assigned to a button? Would that be a possible solution and work in my application?
