I am looking for help on how to create a hyperlink in a cardbox field, so that when played it opens up a folder on our companies server.

For example our server is on Z: drive, we have a folder called project files documentation, which then has many different files i.e. word documents, excel documents in it.

We would like to, on a click of a button, or playing of a macro, open up this or any other chosen folder on our server directly from a Cardbox format.

Can anyone help, anything would be appreciated

I have tried following the instructions on the help screen by typing in a field "file:", however it does not turn blue like the mailto: option we have set up

Hi,
Very simple macro - again, read the manual!
Assume: In field the relevant path i stored.
Selecting file and launch it:

path = Fields("PATH")
x=GetOpenFilename("All Files (*.*|*.*",path,"Select file")
Launch x

Add a button for starting this macro and solved!
