Hi Guys, I am sending a Excel piece of work to my manager which he must approve via e-mail.
He wants a hyperlink to the Excel path in his e-mail so he can see it straight away. I have this code which sends him the e-mail from an Excel button with Voting Buttons but only text appears not a Hyperlink. Any ideas how its done?

Hi, Justin.

You have to format the link as a hyperlink using HTML tags.  Change this line

.Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem.HTMLBody = "G:\Restricted\UKMFG-TS-AM-EUC03\TRES\FITR - P11 Feb'11\FITR Oracle Dailies Feb'11.xlsm"

to

.Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem.HTMLBody = "<a href=""file://G:\Restricted\UKMFG-TS-AM-EUC03\TRES\FITR - P11 Feb'11\FITR Oracle Dailies Feb'11.xlsm"">Open the spreadsheet</a>"

    .To = "canlan@mfglobal.com;"

                   .Subject = "FITR Dailies - "
            .Body = "G:\Restricted\UKMFG-TS-AM-EUC03\TRES\FITR - P11 Feb'11\FITR Oracle Dailies Feb'11"
          Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem.HTMLBody = "<a href=""file://G:\Restricted\UKMFG-TS-AM-EUC03\TRES\FITR - P11 Feb'11\FITR Oracle Dailies Feb'11.xlsm"">Open the spreadsheet</a>"
