Link to shared folder.

Hi all,

I have a table.One column is filled by file paths (path to some documents)

for ex : //aljs003/mse/mse3/imp2001.xls.

This is shared folder on a different system.

My requir is I want to give a hyperlink to this column.

Once i click on the path it should take me to that document.

Tried with link to url and mapped the path to it.It is giving invalid url.

Can anybody suggest how to solve it.Any other way of doing it.

Thanks and regards,

      Syntax of file protol is


      //Specifying a drive and a file name.

      file:///C:/My Documents/ALetter.html

      //Specifying only a drive and a path to browse the directory.

      file:///C|/My Documents/

      //Specifying a drive and a directory using the command line representation of the directory location.

      C:\My Documents\

      //Specifying only the directory on the local primary drive.

      \My Documents\
