Hi from Beautiful Brittany,
There seems to be some confusion about how to define
a full file name on your computer.
On the Mac, you don't specify the main disk drive,
it is implicit, so you start with the second level
(beginning with a "/")
On a PC you must start with the first level, i.e.
the disk drive (don't ask me why !).
put "/RevFolder/PDF Files/" into LVFilePath
defines a file path.
put "File1.pdf" into LVFileName
defines a file name.
put LVFilePath & LVFileName into LVFullName
defines the full name ....... on a Mac,
put "C:" & LVFilePath & LVFileName into LVFullName
defines the full name ........ on a PC
(if, of course, your disk drive is "C:")
And, as specified by Mark, and others :
open file LVFullName
read file LVFullName into LVworkArea [until ...]
close file LVFullName
"Nothing should ever be done for the first time !"
