chuck this in the (general) in the form you whish to have the link in

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

then have this for the link

Private Sub Link_Click()
Go = ShellExecute(Me.hwnd, vbNullString, "c:\file.html", vbNullString, "c:\", SW_SHOWNORMAL)
End Sub

thats it...

So then, address the issue:

"How do I display it as a Hyperlink(Using What control and property)"

And *then* answer the question. Please withdraw your current answer as it does not address the question.
