HYPERLINK failed to open file in network shared folder

Hi.

I'm using NAV v4.0 SP3. I have this form where i can specify file pathname and if i click open button, it will open the file.
Currently im using HYPERLINK("Path Name"); to open the file.

It's working fine if i select files in local drives.
But when i select file that's in network shared folder, got error c/side hyperlinking failed
I tried to move the file to local folder, and it works fine.

So, what can i do to make this hyperlink works well too to open files in network shared folders?

Thanks in advance

    Make sure you can access the file in network shared folder using explorer. If not, your permission to that folder must be set.

    Hi, nickadrian
    Thanks for the reply

    I have no problem accessing the file using explorer. Already permitted.

    any other idea what's wrong here?
    or any other way i can use other than HYPERLINK?
    i have tried to use the wshShell.Run, but not working.

    What is the error message and what exactly is the code in your HYPERLINK?

    below is the error message :
    C/SIDE Hyperlinking failed.

    You tried to hyperlink to this target:
    \\abc\shared folder\123.txt

    Do you want to place that hyperlink target on the clipboard?


    and the code is simply like this
    TESTFIELD("Path Name");
    HYPERLINK("Path Name");

    "Path Name" is the field on the table.

    Check carefully the text specified in the Path Name. I get the same error message if the file is not found.

    The file is there...
    Like i've said, if i copied the file from the shared folder to local folder, let's say C:\, it works fine.

    I mean the spelling. Check carefully the text specified in the table containing the field "Path Name"
