1032 - How can I jump to a Word doc from inside a piece?

by - Joseph Ganci

We have several word files (statutes) that need to be referred to throughout the program. Is it possible to Jump to a word document from AW? This program will be on CD and not the web. Thanks in advance!


JumpOutReturn("winword.exe", "DocName.doc")

Assuming Word is known on the system, you won't have to provide the path to it. You will, on the other hand, point to the document name. If the file is in the same location as your Authorware lesson file, you can concatenate the FileLocation variable to the document name, like so:

JumpOutReturn("winword.exe", FileLocation^"DocName.doc")
