Hello. Is there a way to do the following? I am using ASPX.
Have the IE on the PDA read a text file from 'My Documents'.
I have tried the following and nothing seems to work.

file://\my documents\test.txt
[profile]\my documents\test.txt

the "file:" protocol will work if you are accessing files located on or local to the client machine running the browser (the pda in this case).
if you want to access a "file" located on a server you must make it accessible through the web or file transfer protocols ("http:" or "ftp:").
