In a database table we store references to files, which are kept on Windows file systems.
Those files are not stored on the http-server, or in the database as 'BLOB's .
It's a large number, more than 200.000 files. Example, PDF-, GIF-, XLS-, DOC-, and TXT- files.
I use Oracle APEX 5.0.4 and I'm trying to get the following to work ...:
In an Interaktive report one column refers to a database column, containing file references specified like this;
<a href= "c:/folder1/testfile1.txt">Dokument</a>
In the web report a user will click on a link, that triggs the physical file testfile1.txt to open up in a 'standard' Windows program.
Anyone who knows if this solution would work ? Must the files be stored on the http-server, or in the database as 'BLOB's ?
All help is greatly appreciated !
