Getting complete file path in Acro Java Script

Hi All,

I have a requirement where I have a field ZPATH1 on Adobe Interactive Form. I am putting a BROWSE button and writing following JavaScript on CLICK event on this button for populating the chosen file path into field ZPATH1.

*Start of JavaScript

var sFile;;

var oFile;

oFile =;

this.parent.parent.Sub_Form_Fields_Mass.ZPATH1.rawValue = oFile.path;

*End of JavaScript

1. --> Giving me the pop up to select the file.

2. this.parent.parent.Sub_Form_Fields_Mass.ZPATH1.rawValue = oFile.path; --> Putting the oFile path in field ZPATH1 on the form.

3. This way is only giving me the selected FILE NAME whereas I need the complete path.

I have tried below way also:

this.parent.parent.Sub_Form_Fields_Mass.ZPATH1.rawValue =;

This function returns me the complete path but in URL form. It does not give me the presentation server path.

Please suggest me how to get the complete path of presentation server to the file.

Appreciation would be honored in form of points!!!

    I don't recognize the tech - is it something related to BusinessObjects Enterprise?
