How do I open an external file from a button on an Access edit form.?

I have a simple on line web form that collects data and sends it into an Access Database held in a folder called "HR".  It also uploads a users resume, which is uploaded to a file folder called "Uploads" located in "HR".  I have created a snippet of code that works great if I run it from an access db on the server:

Option Compare Database
Private Sub Command50_Click()
FollowHyperlink "uploads/" & Me.filename
    Exit Sub
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command51_Click
End Sub

HOWEVER, when I try to replicate this function with a local version of the access database (with linked tables) on my desktop, updating the path, I get an error message that reads: Cannot locate the internet server or proxy server.  I have permissions set.  

Here is the code I am using to try and grab the resume from my local (desktop) version.
Private Sub Command148_Click()
FollowHyperlink "y:/hr/uploads/" & Me.filename
    Exit Sub
    MsgBox Err.description
    Resume Exit_Command51_Click
End Sub

NOTE:  "Y" is my mapped drive letter to the server.
