    Well...here goes.

    I have an old(er) version of MSProject (2000). I heavily use the task hyperlinks to link tasks to webpage URLs as well as local documents. When I create and access a hyperlink to a web page or to a non-MSOffice document, it functions "correctly". By that, I mean that the document opens in the correct application and when I close/exit the application, it returns to the open MSProject plan. When I hyperlink to an MSOffice document (Excel, Powerpoint, etc.) it again opens the document in the correct application but THIS TIME when I close that, I return to an open MSProject application/session...but my project plan has been closed !????

    This is a very curious and non-intuitive functionality IMHO. There IS a way around this but it's annoying. I have to right-click on the hyperlink icon on the task and then select the hyperlink entry on that context menu and then select "open in new window" (amazingly slow...and there's no keyboard shortcuts for it). When the "new window" opens, it then will work "correctly"...namely, when I close that window, I am returned to MSProject application with my project plan still open.

    Any ideas on workarounds for this? I am not familiar enough with VBA to find a way to customize MSProject to always execute hyperlinks in a new window (which would be fine with me). I can't seem to find anything on the web that addresses this. Possibly this issue has been obviated in subsequent versions of MSProject.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Wes,

    I have not used MS Project 2000 in a long time and do not have the software anymore to test against. I do not recall any issues with Hyperlinks nor could I find any old references or issues when researching it. Sorry, but I am unable to assist. Anyone else have any suggestions?
    Regards,

    Gary

    I'm in the same boat. No useful information to offer.

    Sorry.

    Onward and upward.
