I'm using an Exact Form labeled but I forgot where the actual file is located on my laptop. Is there a way to search Quickbase on the full file location?

I'm an amateur using Quickbase so many of the functions I just copy paste to suit my needs.

URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=dbpage&pagename=" & URLEncode("MOP Test.html") & "&clist=a&rid=" & [Record ID#]

This is the code I use for Printing the exact form. As you can see all it says is MOP Test.html

The file is uploaded to QuickBase with a macro in the WORD document so QuickBase does not "know" where the file is on your machine.  I would just search my machine for MOP Test.* (on a windows machine the star is a wild card since there are a couple possibilities of the extension.  It is not HTML but probably DOC or DOCX

further to Davids comments...since its stored in a dbpage in quickbase, if you want to open it in word so you can make changes to it you need to do that using the Exact Forms template for word.  more info on how to get that template can be found here: http://www.quickbase.com/user-assistance/Default.html#creating_exact_forms.html%3FTocPath%3DCreate%2...

snippet from that help link...

To edit an existing exact form:

  • Open the QuickBase Exact Form template file, then complete one of the following tasks:
  • Click Add-Ins > Open from QuickBase for Word 2007 or later.
  • Click File > Open from QuickBase for versions of Word prior to 2007.
  • Select the table that contains the exact form that you want.
  • Select the form name, when it appears, then click Open.
