Hello All,

Let me describe my situation.
I'm running MS4W and Chameleon for MapServer on my pc.
I used
To create the connection etc..
My .ovf file is also on my c:\

I have an MS access data base with a command button called "Stations"
which exports a .csv file to my/or anyone elses C:\ based on a query.
The query dumps name, latitude and longitude into a .csv file. - This
works great.

Following this event, a browser is opened which displays:
Which maps BASED on my newly created .csv file.

I.E. The map looks different based on what you have queried in MS

Here is my problem.
When I do all of this on my pc (where everything is setup) it WORKS

If I send the database to a collegues computer, and they click button
"Stations", the map is produced based on the .csv ON MY computer.
For example if they do a new query and click the button, it still
produces the .csv on my c:\

How do I get it so that the newly exported .csv is reflected on ANYONE's

Do I make the change in ogrinfo? .map file? FWTools Shell? My .ovf file?

Here is my .ovf file
        <OGRVRTLayer name="stations">
        <GeometryField encoding="PointFromColumns"

Any help would be appreciated,
Bruce Persaud
