    could you explain what 'escaping' the spaces means?

    i have tried hyperlinks with spaces, and i dont have any problems with it. i was trying to recreate the event you were experiencing, but i dont really know what you mean...

    frig sample, i have a server named 'XI' it is the main file server...

    it has a folder called "Departmental Procedures"

    if i type it in excel as '\\xi\Departmental Procedures' it follows the link fine.

    if i type it like \\xi\Departmental%20Procedures it works fine also.

    its easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission.
