This looks promising John but can't get it to work...the link just sits there looking at me, doesn't seem to respond.

I’m wondering if there is a way to utilitize the ‘FileLocation’ var info in a URL link in html on a typical xerte page. Ie

<a href=FileLocation +’media/rontest.pdf’> open pdf file  <a>

I can’t get any permutation to work…. I know I’m using a screwdriver as a hammer…  : - (

Anyone done this?
