I have an Access 2007 app with logic that creates a Word document, and when it is done, I use FollowHyperlink to transfer the user to the document.  This worked in Access 2003, but now in Access 2007, I am getting a message (see attached image for full text): Word experienced an error trying to open the file."

What do I need to do to get rid of this error?
