Basically, I have a list item with a field for a shortcut. I need to link to a file on a network drive. I have that part working via:
"File://corporate.com/division/stuff more stuff/file.xls".
When I paste the full link into my internet browser it pulls open the file. When I click the actual link created in the sharepoint list item after saving, I get this error:
"Cannot find path ____ Make sure path or internet address is correct"
I'm managed to determine that it is due to the spaces in the file path (the folder names). What I'm still stuck on is how to work around this without renaming all my folders.
Is there a way to prevent it from encoding this in the first place? Is it due to my browser needing the link encoded? Is there a way to properly decode it so that it recognizes the correct path again?
