I have hyperlinks in in my database and some of them give the warning message and some don't.  I just want the warning message not to be displayed.

They're all linking to PDF files.  No executables.

In Registry Editor, locate the following registry subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common

1) Click the registry subkey, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click Key.
2) Type Security, and then press ENTER to name the key.
3) On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
4) Type DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then press ENTER to name the entry.
5) In the right pane, right-click DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then click Modify.
6) In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, click Decimal, and then type 1 under Value data.

Note A value of 0 enables the hyperlink warning message. A value of 1 disables the hyperlink warning message.
7) Click OK.
8) Exit Registry Editor.

Yes, thank you for the fast reply, but I already found that.  I don't have access to update my registry.  It only affects SOME of the hyperlinks, and not others... So there has to be a way to do it without adjusting the registry.

Sorry ... I don't know beyond that.  Someone will be along that does most likely.

While it did not solve my problem, it certainly is an answer to the problem in general.
