Universal Email - Change the file attachment path

Hi All, I have a recordset looping through files to attach. The fiels are stored in a different folder to the email code. I am guessing I need toalter the below but am unsure what the exact code should be:

$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddAttachment($WA_MailObject,"".$row_complete["file"] ."");

The files are in a folder called "pdfs" in the root.

Many thanks

Jon

Thanks Jason, works a threat. Is it possible to link to a folder outside the root?

Thanks again Jason

yes, use a document reelative path.


for example if the page that sends the email is at:

http://mysite.com/pages/sendEmail.php


and you want to attach file that is one directory bellow the site root, you would need to move down 3 directories, so:

$WA_MailObject = WAUE_AddAttachment($WA_MailObject,"../../../folderName/filename.pdf");
