http:// in string for images

P: n/a
I am trying to concatenate a string to pull images into a report. The
trouble I am running into is that this it has to use "http://" in the
beginning. Using "//filelocation"&filename&".filetype" works fine.
Adding the http to the front doesn't seem to be that big of a deal.
Why is this causing a problem? How can I make it work?

Thanks in advance

When you add "http://" you are telling the file system to use Hypertext
Transport Protocol, e.g., get the file from the Internet or from a local
intranet. That is more than a bit different from the other format you show
which will get the file directly from a folder to which you have access and
proper permissions on your local hard drive or your LAN.
How can I make it work?


Retrieve the remote files beforehand so you can access them like any other
local file? Googling for some code to automate retrieving the remote files
would be a good start.
