No such luck, you need to use openfile with a file name variable, close the file with this variable name.

Thanks so much guys! Exactly what I needed … I wasn’t formatting my paths quite right. Also, in case anyone is interested, here’s a slightly simpler method that works on Windows based on your patches.

Hello again, have to revise my previous post, I spoke too soon. Could anyone help me with navigating to folders on Windows? I have some even simpler code here which allows me to open applications, files and shortcuts, even with spaces in the name. And I swear I’ve seen this work with folders before, but now when I drag a folder in and click the bang it just changes the focus from MaxMSP to whatever they call the Finder on a PC. I need it to actually open a browser window and open the folder I’ve chosen. I’ve played around with [absolutepath] and sprintf /regexp formatting but I can’t seem to find the key. It’s so close!!!! Any help very appreciated. Thanks,
Diane
