[fdo-users] Network share SHP access

Hi Jackie,

Thank you for your help!
I was indeed trying with the UNC notation and using a mapped drive solves the problem.
However I would prefer - if possible - not to use mapped drives.
Is the UNC notation just not supported by the provider or are there other conditions to meet to make it work?

Are you using UNC notation for your file paths (eg. \\server\share\file.shp)?
You might get better success by mapping that network share as a drive, and
then use a path to that mapped drive.
