Why do you say is correct?! If it was correct the file would open, right?

Can you please post the content of the field? Is it pointing to a file that you have access to?

You still didn't provided the information that I requested! What is the address that is appearing on the hyperlink address field to check if the address is correct? Probably the address is incorrect, that why you get this error.

So...my suspicious where right! You have an invalid hyperlink, to a location/file that is not correct! That's why you get the error! You need to correct the hyperlink on the Excel sheet, put the correct address on your hyperlink.
