FILEOPEN Command: Windows

Opens the Open dialog box for the Enhanced Editor or opens a file in the Enhanced Editor.

Windows specifics: all


Required Argument

file specification

specifies a valid Windows path, filename, and file extension. If the file resides in the current working folder, the path is not required.


The Open dialog box appears if you do not include a file-specification on the FILEOPEN command. If the FILEOPEN command does include a file-specification, the Open dialog box is bypassed and the file opens in the Enhanced Editor. You must include single or double quotation marks around the specified file.
Note: To open a file in the Program Editor, use the DLGOPEN command.
