    Hyperlink in footnote on a form? (XP)

    Is there any way to include a clickable hyperlink in a footnote in a form template.
    I have a form which I want to lock. When I do the hyperlink I've put in the footnote won't work.
    Any ideas?

    Re: Hyperlink in footnote on a form? (XP)

    Hi Matt:
    I haven't tried it in a footnote, but here is a tip I copied:
    Hyperlinks inserted directly into a document protected as a form are unavailable to the user. But they can be placed in a MacroButton field as the display text, and one macro can be used to follow all hyperlinks. Note that the hyperlink will be treated like plain text (the mouse pointer shape will not change to a hand over the link).

    Syntax for the MacroButton field:

    { MACROBUTTON FollowHLink "http://www.TheHyperlink" }
    VBA Code to follow the hyperlink:
    Sub FollowHLink()
    Selection.Hyperlinks(1).Follow
    End Sub

    Also, see this article
    Cheers,
