Title

Check For A File On The Network

Post

Using FMServer Adv 9 W/Windows Server 2003, FMPro Adv 9 W/XPSP3, FMPro 9 W/XPSP3.

The file is hosted by FMServer Adv 9 and I am using FMPro Adv 9 on the workstation to develope the import script. Trying to check if a file exist on the network that is a mapped drive on the dataserver1 (DataStorage L:). Using the data viewer and the IsValid ("filewin://dataserver1/DataStorage/phone.txt") function returns 1 even when the file does not exist. I am not sure if this is the correct way to check if a file exist on the network. Hope this is enough information. Help is needed.
