Hyperlink Path Problem

When I create a hyperlink, the link does not save the entire path. Example: G:\Public\John\Procedures\Policy.Doc end up being ..\..\Procedures\Policy.Doc.

This ..\..\Procedures\Policy.Doc path works fine on my computer but fails on anybody elses computer. How do I create a hyperlink that will store the entire path?
Thanks - John

Sounds like G: is a mapped drive on your machine. Even if you held the G: indicator, this would only work if the dive was mapped to G: for all users. Better to use the UNC (uniform naming convention) path for the links, e.g. \\bigserver\public\John\Procedures\Policy.Doc

Look up UNC links in Access help to get you started.

try using \\name of server or share\folder\file instead of the local drive mapping.
