hyperlinks 06-05-10

Hi,

Trying to make a document with links to media (mp3's etc) that will
work on any computer. Currently only works on mine, and when run on
another computer the links break (all the media resides on a usb drive
along with the document).

The links all seem to be absolute. Is there a way to make them
relative?

Thanks for any help,

Alex

Lost Database 06-22-07
Hey, I hope someone can help me. I just closed out my database window within access and now I can not access it. I see it in the folder but when I select it, access opens with no database window so I can not get at my information. HELP! Try holding down the Shift key the entire time that the application is opening. I'm guessing that you unchecked the option to Display Database Window, under Tools > Startup. Alternatively, if you have not also disabled Special Keys (bottom of same screen), you should be able to press the F11 button to display the database window. Tom Wicker...

Hyperlinking to Many Pictures
Hello. I am using Microsoft Office 2000 I have a workbook that contains approximately 10 columns, 240 rows of information. Each row has to reference an external file, which will be a hyperlink to an external picture. I know how to manually create the hyperlinks, but I was only wondering if there was possibly an easier way? I was envisioning the possibility of dragging and dropping to create the hyperlinks, or something easy like that. Could anyone provide assistance? No matter how complex, I'll attempt it, and no matter how simple, I will not be ashamed to hear it. Thank you. ---...

visio hyperlink to excel row
I have a drawing of a Dell rack with individual Dell server box pics in it. I figured out how to link one server's picture (using insert hyperlink) to open a spreadsheet containing server stats. What my boss wants is for each individual server's picture, when clicked, to open to its row of data in said excel file. Does anyone have a clue as to how this is done, either thru hyperlink, macro, vba, vbs, or sql script for each server? It would be helpful if the solution could find the server name in the spreadsheet then go right to that row. Thanks very much from a 1st time vis...

URL/Hyperlink not working for recipients
I am using Outlook 2003 running on Windows XP in a Windows 2003 Server environment. I administer an application that requires the user to install the program from a .bat file. I send our users an e-mail with a URL to the bat file (e.g. \\server123 \Application\install.bat). The URL cannot launch the bat file and search Locate Link Browser dialog opens instead. The work around is to cut and paste the URL into the Start\Run dialog where it works fine. (I think this implies that the UNC is defined properly.)

Dynamics GP 10
We are getting ready to upgrade our Production server to GP 10 in a couple weeks.

This would obviously save the need to re-create all the new security roles and access. I have read post that mention some tools you can purchase from vendors but we were curious about an SQL script.
