CallShell or FollowHyperlink

My users need to open PDFs from Access 2003.
I have used CallShell but with various versions of Acrobat they callshell my not reference that users version.
FollowHyperlink is an alternative buy I can't seem to get around the security warning.

Does anyone have a solution to either of these options?
Or another idea, perhaps?
Thank you,

Hi Shawn,

Try using the GoHyperlink function of Allen Browne, that would do the trick for you.

See below thread:

Hope this helps,
I've had good success with followhyperlink specifically for pdf's but you mention security warnings.  Can you adjust your security settings to get around the warnings ?

Can you post the security warning you are getting?  I frequently use the FollowHyperlink method, and don't recall a security warning, although it has been a while since I've used Access 2003.

My security settings on this machine are about as low as they can go.
Win 7, Office 2010, using Access 2003 (its a long story).

Would you like to open this file?
Did you tried the custom Function GoHyperlink?

No warning message, nothing ....

To my understanding, you are not dealing with sandbox security (described at the above link), but hyperlink security - which has a different setting for disabling the warnings.

See the following kb article:

(I do not recommend disabling sandbox or hyperlink warning messages in a corporate environment without going through the proper channels.)
