How to define the path to a database which is the subject of a farcall statement?


#1

I want to issue a farcall statement from a database to a second database which is in a sub-folder of the folder containing the calling database. I keep getting the “…file is not open …” error message so I assume that I’m not specifying the path correctly. I’m using this code:

farcall "Excel Auto_Open files/FuelDataLoader",".CollateData"

Replacing the slash with a colon doesn’t help. Do I need to specify the entire path and, if so, in what format, standard or HFS?


#2

The path is irrelevant. The file must already be open, so you only specify the filename, not the path.


#3

Doh! several times.
