    Default Downloading Link!

    Can I write an html file with a link that points to a file on the C:dirdatafile.mdb of the server instead of C:Inetpubwwwrootdirctorydatafile.mdb?<BR>

    Default Only if...

    C:dir is listed as a virtual directory with your Web server. Web servers are *NOT* supposed to serve up files based on a file-system directory. They are only supposed to allow access to files in virtual directories.<BR><BR>Incidentally, you might note that you *CANNOT* use a link that points to C:Inetpubwwwrootdirctorydatafile.mdb !!<BR><BR>You can only use the *virtual* path "/dirctory/datafile.mdb", right?<BR><BR>
