HYPERLINKS - arcgis explorer

Idea created by ndu@pmss.co.uk on Jul 29, 2010

    Is it just me or do ALL hyperlinks from attribute tables not use relative paths or standard hyperlink paths (Feature class or shapefiles)? I have tried several work arounds and the only way to get this to function is to set up a shared folder and use the computer path  (\\\.......).

    Why is this locked out? Can you please sort this out?!
