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.

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.
