Want to modify a hyperlink address based upon file choosen from common dialog box, but I get a error stating that "the hyperlink address is read only for this hyperlink" any ideas????

Know the common dialog is returning the correct file location name

my code looks something like this:

dim hpl as hyperlink

set hpl = me.[link_field].hyperlink (where link_field is a hyperlink control)

hpl.address = linkname (where link name is new file location)

running gives me the read only error.
