I have been using Access 2002 to maintain a fairly large database of
hyperlinked saved webpage news articles in ...for instance C:\Documents and
Settings\Ken\My Documents\My Webs\LHArchive\2007-2-1_PRNewswire_01.mht
and Access is able to handle the spaces in the folder titles and still
recall the files when clicking on the hyperlink. This is what it changes to
when opening the file:
....but at least it opens without fail. And oh yes, all of the files are in
the same folder as the database file itself.
However, I copied over the database and files to my new Vista Home Pro
system and when I click on the links (new or old) to the files I get "The
address is not valid" response. If I open Windows Explorer I click it and
the page opens in IE like it should. The spaces in the address change to
'%20' for some reason.
What can I do to remedy this 'BIG' problem as my database has over 6000
linked files? I would hate to have to return this new system and revert to
the old one over this issue.
