      Hi prakashroy

       

      can you give us more informations ?

       

      1) Where is the word document: into the HD or in a container of FMP

      2) Which values are in that value list

      I created a button and used the "Open URL" option.  Although I speified an EXCEL  file you just need to change the file name.

      This is what  I put in by "specify" data

      "file:\\\C:\Spydus\Admin Info\Spydus Server Admin Log.xlsx"
