How do I use a hyperlink base without MS Access inserting "http"?

    I am trying to set up a relative hyperlink in a form using "datasheet view"
    in Microsoft Access. Ideally the users will only have to enter or copy the
    names of the files - all of which are stored in one folder on a central
    machine on our LAN - and when they click the link, the file will open. I
    have set the hyperlink base to the path to that central folder, but Access
    insists on inserting "http://". When I manually "edit hyperlink" and remove
    the http, everything works perfectly, but every new entry gets saved with
    "http://". I have done some searching, but the only answers I can find
    involve Visual Basic. I'm hoping that there is some way to simply use the
    hyperlink base function with the path I've set.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
