Re: Using Externals

Simon,

Your example worked perfectly. There are not enough words to express my
gratitude. This had me bogged down most of the day before finally throwing
in the towel and requesting help.

I went back to the manual to find what I missed and reading between the
lines the first example under relative URL is applicable, but you need to be
imaginative to get there.

A later response to yours by Stephane also worked however it used a direct
path to the folder, quote: file:///D:/SVNrepository/folder1 folder1, which I
would expect to work.

My issue with this example is when the folder is transferred to my server
the file structure won't be the same (D:/ does not exist), hence the
solution of relative URL's.
