I have a field on my form that stores a Hyperlink path to different files on the user's computer. (Word files, excel, etc)
The user wants to be able to click on the path & it automatically open the file.
Right now it just opens up a new tool bar & tries to go to the link as if it is a web address.
Is this possible?

try this on the click event of the control bound to the hyperlink data type:
If you want to be a bit more flexible then convert the values to a text data type and just use code at runtime to execute/open them e.g. with the FollowHyperlink, Shell or ShellExecute methods.
