Support 1

Formativ can be used to open a file attachment using the Windows file association, as shown in the applet example below. This example should be launched from a toolbar button on an open message view.

' GroupWise integrations should include the toolbar for all required message
' types.  Note that setting this integration will require restarting GroupWise.
sub Main(Client, GWEvent)

  dim iFileName
  dim iFound
  dim iIndex
  dim oAttachment
  dim oMsg

  set oMsg = Client.ClientState.CommandMessage
  if IsObject(oMsg) then
    iFound = false
    iIndex = 1
    do while (iIndex <= oMsg.Attachments.Count) and (not iFound)
      if oMsg.Attachments(iIndex).ObjType = fgwFile then
        iFound = true
        iIndex = iIndex + 1
      end if

    if iFound then
      set oAttachment = oMsg.Attachments(iIndex)
      iFileName = oAttachment.FileName
      if iFileName <> "" then
        iFileName = Utilities.TempFiles & iFileName
        call oAttachment.Save(iFileName)
        call Utilities.OpenDocument(iFileName)
        iFound = false
      end if
      set oAttachment = nothing
    end if

    if not iFound then
      call MsgBox("Cannot find a file attachment.", vbInformation, "Open Document")
    end if
  end if

  set oMsg = nothing

end sub

I hope this helps.
