Hi All

I have create an oft file which is template and its in a particular folder in my computer. I want to open this file, it is an outlook file and then add details to it and send it. I am using the following code to open it but it is not working

$path="C:\Winnt\trans.oft"

$var=FileOpen ($path & "Trans.oft", 1 )

Sleep(6000)

msgbox(1, "res",$var)

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

It's ShellExecute("C:\Winnt\trans.oft") that you need. Besides, with that code you posted you have also ignored what the help file says about FileClose(). A little more time in the help file now will make things a lot easier for you in the future. Always read the entire page in help and be sure that you understand the function before you try to use it.
