Re: Recursive query - net.data



fixed

Don,
Does that imply that the directory structure might be irrelevant?
I am assuming that you have a DB2 file containing a list of names each of which is essentially the url for a document that resides in a folder on a server available as a network drive via Windows Explorer.
You would return the matching url(s) as links on a response page which would allow the user to simply click to open the document.

Peter,

Exactly - you say that so much better than I. The "index" search (SQL)
is done on the System i, but all of the actual documents are stored on a
windows server.

Don,
So you want a web page with an input box which when submitted with a
wildcard type value will cause a directory tree to be searched and
return a list of one or more matching candidates.

Are the folders to be searched on the PC directly or using the same
folders on the IFS?

Subject: [WEB400] Recursive query - net.data

I'm curious if there is a way to do the following:

I have a directory structure ( on a PC ) similar to this:

ALL_Documents
Quality Docs
Operations Docs (These are just WORD documents)
Finance Docs
Shipping Docs
etc.

Inside each of the departmental folders, there are many ISO documents
with lengthy names - which we would like to 'search for and call up' by
partial "key" scanning.

I know how to build a macro which would FIRST ask the user to position
to the specific folder they are looking into, and then ask for the
keyword to scan for.

Example:
--------------------
Quality |
Operations |
Finance | User would first be required to highlight which folder
they want to scan.
Shipping |
-------------------

Enter the partial or full keyword to search by:

____________________________________ (then the user would enter in
their "search' keyword.)


The macro would have four separate queries - based on what the user
selected in the 'top' section.

My question is this: Is there some way to eliminate having the user
'choose' which directory they are positioning to, and instead just have
the search for the keyword begin at the ALL_Documents level and
automatically go thru each of the 4 sub-folder levels?

TIA
