Forms that link to Windows folders

I would like to modify a contact form to be able to assign a hyperlink to a specific windows (not outlook) folder on my server.  This link would need to be different for each record.

Ultimately I would like to click on the link which woud open the windows folder specific to a contact that contains correspondence, images, etc relative to that contact.

Just tested your code with Label1 on General page, worked as a charm
Sub Label1_Click()
    Set objWeb = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
    objWeb.Navigate Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages("General").Controls("Label1").Caption
    objWeb.Visible = True
End Sub

SR this looks just like what I am looking for!  Need just a bit of help to implement though.

I created a lable control
entered the folders address in the caption for the control
pasted this code into the script editor:

Sub Label1_Click()
    Set objWeb = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
    objWeb.Navigate Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages _
      ("P.2").Controls("Label1").Caption
    objWeb.Visible = True
End Sub

and got this error: Object Required 'Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages(...)'
