i'd like to write a script that prompts for a PC name, then according to the PC name open log files on that PC.

example

;workstation name input

$workstation = InputBox ( "Workstation Name", "Please type in the workstation name.","")

;open log files

Run ( "\\$workstation\c$\logfilename", "" )

the input was simple but to get the log files to open. i've tried run and file open, but i dont know what else to try. can anyone help? i cant even get a directory to open. would i have to use notepad to open it?

thanks

Larry...

thanks.. i tried the Run ( "\\" & $workstation & "\c$\logfilename", "" ) and couldn't get it to work. the notepad works fine however.

is there a command to just open a folder on a remote workstation? if i could do that, then i could just use the notepad command to open the log files.

thanks in advance.

Sorry Larry.. i'm doing this the hard way. I can just use

Run ( "explorer \\" & $workstation & "\c$\winnt\system32")

along with notepad to open the files

THANKS
