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)
