I was given a solution in this question:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_22472446.html

CODE
-------
TextDrive = ServerLink
strDrive = Left(TextDrive, 2)

Dim objWMI
Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\CIMV2")
Set colDisk = objWMI.ExecQuery("Select * From Win32_LogicalDisk Where DeviceID='" & strDrive & "'")
For Each Item In colDisk
  ServerLink = Replace(TextDrive, strDrive, Item.ProviderName)
Next
--------

That converts a network drive letter to a UNC path. It worked great until I tried using it on a field that was formatted for a hyperlink. I think that the automatic # symbols that are put at the beginning and end of the link are screwing it up because it doesn't do anything now. How would I modify this for a hyperlink field?
