OK I know about the standard code to create a server object. I tested the code by pointing it to "C:oot.ini" and it returned true. Now my problem is when the filename is a network file, such as this:<BR><BR>\some_computersome_foldersome_file.zi p<BR><BR>How would I go about checking if this file exists? No matter how I do it, FileExists() keeps returning false. Thanks,
