Omnis Windows Shortcut Question - Select Datafile

Hi Jeff,

We've usually taken the path of creating a ".ini" file with the same name as the library.  In the Startup_Task $construct, we read the INI file and get our "Datafile=<path>" entry, and then open the datafile ourselves.

Regards,
Paul.

Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool, so I gave him a glass of water.
