Hyperlink Problem

P: n/a
I have a hyperlink on a form whose hyperlink property is set from a
procedure and is pulled from a table.

The procedure checks the value of the link in the table and prefixes it
with http:// if the table value is not already so prefixed.

The trouble is, this works fine, except for one address:

http://www.mun.ca/

This always opens my browser with the address from my windows directory:

file:///C|/WINDOWS/Temporary Internet Files/Content.IE5/V0GUGKO9/mun[2]

Other hyperlinks on the form which are populated for other records work
fine.

The above example is of our university page. It was changed recently
and the http://www.mun.ca/ address is actually different from what is
stored in the above windows address.

Can anyone suggest why this is?

Tim, I'm sure you know how to use HyperlinkPart() to parse the display and
address parts of the field, and to verify it's valid (contains at least 2
#s). You should also be able to see these parts by right-clicking and
choosing Edit Hyperlink.

If it's not something simple like that and this is your ISP, could it be
something to do with caching or LMHosts entries? It might be worth deleting
all cached content from inside Internet Explorer (Tools | Internet Options |
General | Delete Files), checking your proxy server settings (Tools |
Internet Options | Connections | Settings), or checking if you are using
LMHosts (Control Panel | Network | Properties | TCP/IP | Properties |
Advanced | WINS | Enable LMHosts lookup).

Actually, I don't use hyperlinks all that much, so I'm not sure about
the above, but I will look into it.

Hadn't thought of clearing my cache, but it just seemed weird to me that
cached web site info would play a part in it, but I will keep it in mind
if the HyperLinkPart() approach doesn't work.

I appreciate your reply, thanks very much. 8)
