Question
Hi Scott,

Is there a way within code to fire up AutoCAD using a filename hyperlink field?   So, if the hyperlink to the filename is clicked, hey presto?

TIA

Pete

Answer
I don't like using a Hyperlink datatype. Instead, I use the click or double click event and use the code:

Application.Followhyperlink controlname

So I store the full path and filename in a text field.

Hope this helps,
Scott<>
