Windows Folders

By JoePlaisted ·
Hello,
I have a Windows 2000 system that has 40 people that access a common drive for file storage of job information. Each job is stored in individual file folder with a unique name ane number (ie 2601 - joes chicken joint). The drive has currently 300 file folders on it and the problem that is being run into is that to find the job folder you need you have to double click on MY DOCUMENTS, then click on the drive letter with the job folders on it, the scan through for the job folder that you want.
My question is this: Is there a way to create a form like you would in either ACCESS or EXEL to enter the job information that you are looking for and when you hit the enter key the file folder that you are looking for is called up?

Two work arounds but not real solutions.
1) (don't get too mad at me for this one) SEARCH for Files and Folders will allow you to type a folder name and will then find the folder which can be opened from the SEARCH window. OUCH !!
2) Creats shortcuts that can be accessed from the desktop or a single folder.
Not much help but it should work.

Get a copy of AutoIt from www.hiddensoft.com. It is a free scripting program that can compile scripts also. It would be easy to use an input box to get the info and then open Explorer in the desired folder.
