Hi all,

i am using Forms 6i , i am generating a text file and saving it on a fixed location, Now according to new requirement they want me to popup a window and asks user to browse a location and name for that file and save it on user preferred location.

Is there anyway or workaround to do this ?


Best Regards,

Fahad.

Read up on WEBUTIL. I don't know if it is compatable with 6i, but it does seem to fit your requirement.

For Forms 6i you need to use 'd2kwutil'. Search this forum for references to this facility.
