    Can you be a bit more sepcific about what it is you want to do, please?
    I posted an answer to a hyperlink question <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=out&Number=51216&page=0&vie w=collapsed&sb=5&o=0&part=>here</A> in the Outlook forum, which might help, but I suspect I have not understood what it is you are really asking.
    Hope this helps a bit, anyway.

    From my experimentations here, I don't think you can specify mapped drives.
    Entering
    Pocumentsmydoc.doc
    as the hyperlink, is automatically resolved ('corrected') to
    ServernameFolderDocumentsmydoc.doc

    (W2K on an NT network)

    OK - carrying on from the clues Leif gave, I managed to create a link containing a drive letter (W2K running on W2000.)
    <UL><LI>Type the text - P:foldernamepathname.doc
    <LI>Select the text
    <LI>Copy the text
    <LI>Ctrl+K (takes you into the insert Hyperlink dialogue)<LI>Paste the text into the File or Web Name field<LI>Click on [i]Screen Tip
