I'm stumped. I need to be able to have active hyperlinks to reference
documents in a Microsoft Word form. The problem is that when I lock the
form, the hyperlinks can no longer be selected by the user. It occured to
me that I could insert an ActiveX control button to open the hyperlink
indirectly, which seems to work on the surface. (When I lock the form I
can still click the button) but I don't have the VB programming skills to
make the button open a link, and I'm remarkably short of resources here at

I hate asking for help for something I think I should be able to figure
out myself, but, as I said, I'm stumped. Any help at all would be greatly
