follow a hyperlink from word vba autoform

I have a word document with many autoforms and macro code. I would like to add some code that either automatically opens a specific web page or asks the user to press a button that then goes to to the web page. How do I do this? Also, is there a way to time out if the connection isn't made?

This is what I normally use :)

Private Sub Sample()
    On Error GoTo ErrIE
    Set browser = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
    browser.Visible = True
    browser.Navigate ("http://Google.Com")

    Exit Sub
    MsgBox Err.Description, vbInformation, "Oops"
End Sub

Open in new window
