      Opening folder or URL based on field contents and calculation

      Post

      Hi all,

       

      Im rather new to Filemaker programming.

       

      I need help to understand "open URL" function in scripts.

       

      What I need is: I have a database containing informations of orders and i would like a button that opens a specific folder based on a constant and a ordernumber.

      Tabel: WorkOrder

      Constant is "K:\Shell\Misc Pictures"

      Field: WorkNumber (numeric value)

       

      So far I have come to that the needed funtion is OpenUrl, but every time I put in "K:\shell\misc pictures\"  & GetAsText ( WorkOrder::WorkNummer )

      i get the message "This text constant does not end with a quotation mark"

       

      If I put in what ever other text in the constant quotation marks besides ":\" , i can close the script editor, but the scripts does ofcourse not work.

       

      Any help is appriciated.

       

      Regards

      Thomas
