Hi there

I feel confident that this is possible, and I have searched, but am unable to find how to do this.

Brief:

My database contains blobs which represent attachments that users have attached. I have a button "open attachment". This button should then, well, open the attachment using whatever programme is defined in the registry as the default programme to open the attachment.

WHere I have got to:

I can attach the blob. I can then write it out to a temporary directory using the original file name. I can get the file type from the registry using the extension of the filename I write out.

What I can't figure out how to do:

Lookup the registry and get the associated programme based on the filetype to launch the file.

All help appreciated

Clark

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

You're welcome, it's a lot easier when you know what to look for it makes me look a lot smarter than I actually am. :-)

      This UDF is because I'm tired of trying to use UI Automation and Send to automate Adobe Acrobat. I often need to read the contents of PDFs and Acrobat is not easy to work with as a window.  The functions are based on the API Reference from Adobe located here.
      Acrobat Pro is required for all functions.
      It's very beta right now, but it still seems to work. Currently, the functions are based around page level manipulation of PDF documents: re-arranging, swapping, deleting, and moving pages as this is what I use the most.
      Please feel free to request/suggest features!

      Hello,
       
      so I have started to learn to use the Word UDF and got issue to add my pictures after exact paragraphs. I was searching in the forum for the solution, checked with examples and still I don't understand how to add pictures after paragraph in new line.
       
      My word document has like 8 pages and for example on page I have paragraph named "My examples:" and here starts my problem.
       
      I have tried to do this:
      #include <Word.au3> Local $oWord = _Word_Create() Local $oDoc = _Word_DocOpen($Word, @ScriptDir & "\examples.docx", Default, Default, True) $oSearchRange = _Word_DocRangeSet($oDoc, -1, $wdParagraph, 0) $oRangeFound = _Word_DocFind($oDoc, "My examples:", $oSearchRange) _Word_DocPictureAdd($oDoc, @ScriptDir & "\pic1.jpg", Default, Default, $oRangeFound) And here the picture adds before the paragraph My examples: on same line and looks like
      {pic1}My Examples:
       
      What I want to see is:
      My examples:
      {PICTURE IN NEW LINE} which is pic1.jpg from my code.
       
      How I can do that? I want to add 3 pictures in a row in new line each like:
      My examples:
      {pic1.jpg}
      {pic2.jpg}
      {pic3.jpg}
       
      Hope I explained this well, but you can ask me if you need any additional information to clarify.
