Although I’ve been programming solely in Clarion since the DOS version, I have a project that is outside my comfort zone (and knowledge), so I’m hoping someone can help.
I’m looking to reference a folder structure on a server from a variety of different workstations.
Each project created on the Server can store its images on any drive / folder. The location for that specific project is then stored in a config table in an SQL table held on that server.
So on the server, a project may store its data in “D:\event\images”. What I’m looking for is a way for a workstation App to read that location and be able to access it
What technique can I use to read the folder location from the SQL server and then access it from a workstation App ? If it helps, all the apps are held and run from the same folder on the server.
One technique is of course to create a mapped drive, but that would be required each workstation and for each project, whereas I’d like this to be seamless.
Not sure if I’ve explained myself very well… or… it may be a very Noddy / stupid question with an easy answer.
Either way, I’d appreciate some help if possible.
