I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a problem I'm having. I have a form that is used to input data on tasks. The table that the form is linked to has several fields used to store hyperlinks to source files pertaining to these tasks. Instead of having the user type in the corresponding text boxes on the form, I have placed command buttons that allow them to open the insert hyperlink dialogue window, from which they navigate to the proper folder and select the file they want to link to. The link is then stored in the proper text box which has been set to invisible. All of this is working fine, the problem lies in the fact that the database has been split. The back end resides on a network drive while the mde file resides on the user's "C:" drive. The issue I'm having difficulty with is that when they click on the command button, the hyperlink window opens and is defaulted to the folder that the mde resides in. I would like to set it so that it opens to the folder that the back end is located on. I have tried setting the hyperlink base to the correct location, but this had no effect. Can anyone explain how to get around this situation? -- Cheers Klingon Coder "Ancient Klingon Proverb - Act and you shall have dinner, Think and you shall be dinner"
