I need to link to a Web page in another solution. If the code for the current web page is in Solution Web_UI and I need to call a file in Solution Web_XX, how to I express that in the NavigateUrl?  (obviously "Web_XX.Edit.aspx" dosen't work).

 <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink8" runat="server" NavigateUrl="Web_XX.Edit.aspx"
                ToolTip="Allow the user to edit an existing order"
                Target="_blank">Entry Form</asp:HyperLink>

    You can't - you could only reference it once it had been published to a website, or actually running under IIS, in which case you would have to use the full path and filename for the page you are trying to access

    Agreed ... you'd need to change the Navigate URL to the full path... for example:
    <asp:HyperLink ID="hl" runat="server" NavigateUrl="" />
