      IWP & WebViewer not displaying local data

      Post

      I'm having weird kind of problem. My Database needs to display a lot of html data, which are stored locally.

       

      I have setup a layout for viewing the data with a webviewer and the data given to the webviewer is all of type: "file:///E:/2009/week43/345678.htm".

       

      The whole setup works fine, but the IWP will NOT display the contents of the webviewer. The script step "OPEN URL" does not work either.

       

      However, the moment i hack in ANY other "web" url like "http:showmethedeal.com" into the webviewer, both the web viewer in IWP AND the "OPEN URL" script step DO work.

       

      What am i missing ?

       

      Windows XP sp3, firefox, fm10pro

          Thank you for your post.

           

          When you specify "file:///E:/2009/week43/345678.htm", external web viewers are going to look on their local E: drive for that particular file.  Obviously, this won't be found.  Therefore, you may want to put the file either on a shared server or web hosting site and reference it directly.  That way, the file referenced can be found.
