slGetFile, loading a local file when in remote mode...

Hi All,

When running in local mode slGetFile locates and loads a file from the local PC... perfect.

When running in remote mode slGetFile locates and loads a file from the server... perfect

Is it possible to run in remote mode and somehow get slGetFile to locate and load a file from a local PC? If not how would I load a local file so I can save it as  a blob, while running in remote mode?

Thanks for any help.

Yes, you can switch back and forth between local and remote mode by using
slPushDatabasae, slSetProcessMods, and slPopDatabase.  Look at ExampleA.Bas
and study the L modchar in slSetProcessMods.

The below does a connect, switches to local mode, gets the data from a local
file and then switches back to remote mode.
   slSetProcessMods "L0"
   slGetFile "Your file name here", YourStringVariable
   slSetProcessMods "L1"

 Thanks Fred,

I was thinking of all sorts of ways to solve this but didn't even think about slSet...,slPush.. and slPop  ::) old age is a sad thing, that's my excuse anyway and I am sticking to it  :)

All the best,
