Hyperlink follow up question

Hi ,

See attached.
An EXPERT gave this neat utility.

It allows me to insert a hyperlink into my form
Specifically I am inserting a  folder & file name.

However, after saving the record ....  I then click on the hyperlink - it does not open my file...??
Why not?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What is the code that the Hyperlink uses?

Check that to see how its connecting to the folder/file... Also check permissions on the folders in case that has any bearing on it.

Permissions are fine..
It's all a bit odd and is best understanding by actually running the simple form.

(Perhaps if might behave differently on someone else's PC)
