Retrieve a document from a server
I have a request to retrieve a document from a server as PMF content which the user has read access. I can open the doc when I put the address in the IE address bar so I know the address is correct.

Can this be done inside a piece of Content?
I've tried:
file:\\, http://, and \\server\folder\xxx.doc
None of which work. It seems I'm missing something simple (I hope).



current client: WF 8.1.05 & 8.2 - Windows 7 64bit - Tomcat 7 - MRE / BID - IE11

local: WF 8.2 - Windows 7 64bit - Tomcat 6 - MRE / BID - FOCUS - IE11

Did you try creating a “Content” where the content Type is “Web Site”.

Then in the URL place the location to your document.


Alternatively you can create a web page that contains hyperlinks to the documents you want available.

< a href="/approot/basedir/mydocument.doc">Download this document < /a>

Best regards,
