I am trying to link to a gif file on a web site. It works when I reference a file on a local drive or network, but not when referencing a web address.

Picture2.Class = "MSPhotoEd.3" ' Set class name.
Picture2.OLETypeAllowed = acOLELinked ' Specify type of object.
Picture2.SourceDoc = f ' Specify source file.
Picture2.Action = acOLECreateLink ' Create linked object.
Picture2.SizeMode = acOLESizeZoom ' Adjust control size.
f is the source file. The web address I am looking to use is
Picture2 is the Unbound Object Frame
