Hi,

Is it possible to (on a contacts form) create a hyperlink that links to a

windows folder, either by:

a) using a command button

b) entering text into the notes box

Thanks,

Amy

Yes, you can use the file:// hyperlink syntax, e.g.:

file://c:\data\my%20folder

Replace any spaces in folder names with the %20 character sequence.

Hi again Sue :)

I used the code on your site:

______________________________

Sub CallReports_Click()

Set objWeb = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")

objWeb.Navigate Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages _

("General").Controls("CallReports").ControlTipText

objWeb.Visible = True

End Sub

______________________________

The command box I am using is called CallReports (thats the control name).

My folder path is stored in the ControlTipText of Advanced Properties,

because I wanted a different caption to show.

When I ran the form and clicked the button, it brought up Internet Explorer,

but wouldn't show the folder. Am I doing something wrong? Should I change the

InternetExplorer.Application to something different?

Thanks,

Amy

Just tried using a URL instead of the windows folder path, and that shows

perfectly. If that helps at all.

What is that folder path you have stored in the ControlTipText? Did you

include the file:// prefix? Does that path work if you enter it in Start |

Run or the IE address window?
