in reply to DBMS and network drive

Presumably by "notepad file" you mean a Windows plain text file, or are you using some special feature of Notepad that I have missed?
Anyway, assuming you are just using open and not any OLE magic, then it is just a question of determining the correct path name for the file in open. The fact that a drive is networked should be transparent at that level.
