Problem with .follow method

P: n/a
I'm having an issue with a hyperlink I've inserted into one of my A97
subforms.

I have a continuos form which has three columns; hyperlink, a
description, and a command buttons. I've made the hyperlink field
invisible and would like the command button to have the same effect as
clicking on the hyperlink text field normally would (I want a standard
picture to appear instead of the filepath of the hyperlink.)

This should be a simple one line code to accomplish this:

Private Sub cmdLink_Click()
txtLink.Hyperlink.Follow
End Sub

It works, but does not work exactly the same as clicking the link
ordinarily would. When the standard text hyperlink is clicked, the
destination file is opened, and the focus remains with it whereas when
the command button is pushed, the destination file is opened and
immediately minimized with focus returning to A97. When I stepped
through the procedure, focus returned to A97 immediately when it hit
'End Sub', so there was no further code being executed that I could
see.

Is there any way to prevent the focus from automatically returning to
Access?
