I have some code that saves a file to a location based on a path the user selects. I have the location of that saved location stored in a string called findShare, I go to put that location in the footer of a message and if it contacts a space in it the hyperlink will be broken.

I am also using some code that replaces the Network drive name with the unc address of the item. If I can get a hyperlink with the network drive name that will be a plus but I am more worried about just getting a full hyperlink so they can click it and go directly to it.

Thanks in advance.

 File Name With Space File Name Without Space
Dim findShare As String

findShare = theFolderBrowser.SelectedPath & "\" & myAttachments(i).DisplayName()

findShare = findShare.Replace("G:", "\\Server\Share1")

myItem.htmlBody = myItem.htmlBody & _
"<br>File: " & findShare & vbCrLf
