Use Excel hyperlink command to create a link to a file using both file location and active sheet cell value

Hi.  I'm trying to create a hyperlink within an excel worksheet that first adds the file location of a saved document and then adds the file name from a cell in the active worksheet.  The intent is to display some of the info in the worksheet but user can click the hyperlink to open the corresponding document to view in more detail.  

File location would be a network shared location "x:\Foldera\Folderb\"
file name would exist in cell AA4 in the active worksheet.  

I got closest using this but document would not open:
=HYPERLINK("x:\Foldera\Folderb\"&AA4)

Thanks for that tip.  Had no idea there was a key command to get into the dialog box.  Turns out i was just missing the file extension.  All fixed.  Cheers!
