Odd issue with network and documents

Hello all,
I have a client with an odd problem.  When he opens a document from a shared drive he gets an error:

Windows cannot find K;\Estate planning\customer, name\living will.doc  Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try it again.

This happens with any word doc in the folders on his K drive.  After he clears the error, he can then click on the document again and it opens without issue.

This question is also posted under Office and Productivity.  Re-posted here to hopefully find someone who can help out.

Any ideas?
Thanks,
jwhite

Probably not part of the original problem?
but that path you gave uses a semi colon instead of a colon.

K:\
not
K;\

and the path name uses a " , " comma?
"...customer, name..."

Hi Rob, my typo on the semi colon, and yes, there is a comma on the clients name.

What happens when you use a path without a comma in the path name?
