However...when I try to follow the link...it says I don't have permission. I am trying to link an OLE object through vba after some user input. I know how to create the field and I know how to manually input the link, I just don't users to have to do anything more than specify the file name.
It definitely got me going in the right direction and I now have an easy solution. I was trying to display PowerPoint previews dynamically without having to generate the preview everytime. Now I create the link when a new record is added and anytime the user browses through the entries...the OLE displays the preview instantly.
