    How can I use a hyperlink without saving as a webpage

    I have files that I would like to access by hyperlinking directly from the MapPoint program without saving it as a web page first. Is there a way of doing this?

    Pushpins?

    Hey Dan

    You can include text as a hyperlink in a pushpin balloon.

    The push pin hyperlink could work, but I can't seem to get it to link to PDF files on my harddrive. Any suggestions?

    I'm not sure what your link looks like but this works for me:

    file:c:/filename.pdf
