Hi ,
I am having a problem with a embedded object in a word document.i actually wanted to embedd a .ini file(a text file).I embedded this object by choosing INSERT->OBJECT->'create from file tab' option and with the checkbox 'display as icon' enabled.When i tried opening this object and use the 'file save
as ' option ,the title bar displayed 'Pkg20-Notepad' instead of original filename.If this is a feature restriction ,is there a option to specify the name of the original file(object embedded inside word) to be present as default option in the 'file save as ' dialog box,instead of *.*


Any help will be great.

With Regards
Gopal

Hi DreamBoat,
The idea was suppose that i had to give somebody my document containing the ini file as as embedded object,when the user tries to save a local copy the default filename that appears in the object is *.* ,instead of this i want the filename of the file embedded in it to be the default substitute.Even if the title bar of the 'file save as ' dialog box (inside the packager object)has the name it is enough

I hope i have the clarified myself.I simply don't want the text to be pasted inside the document but as embedded object.


With Regards
Gopal

Yuk.

Word isn't exactly Winzip....

If it's intra-company, why not put the ini on a network folder, or even a batch file that'll run it...put a hyperlink in the Word doc instead.

Or show them the INI text in the document, put a command button in the document, that will copy that text (don't worry, you can have create an autotext entry of the INI text so they can't change the text) to a new Word doc and save it as a text file with an INI extension and put it where you want it, or where they want it? Macros must be enabled of course.

Hope that gives you some ideas.

I can't help you any other way. Sorry. Maybe someone else can.
