I have a Wiki Page where I have a Content Editor Web Part. I have added a link to a file share. When I hover over the hyperlinked text I can see it's pointing to the correct location and file. But nothing happens when I click on it. It's like clicking on non-hyperlinked text.

I can right click and copy the link and paste in Windows Explorer and it resolves the path and file. Not sure what else can I do. IE is our only browser but I tested with Chrome and FF and they all are behaving the same manner.

I tried various format and none would work. here are some example what I have tried.

<a href="file://server/legal Purchasing/Procurement Active/2014/New procurement list as of 10012013.xlsx">Current procurement List</a>

<a href="file://\\server\legal Purchasing\Procurement Active\2014\New procurement list as of 10012013.xlsx">Current procurement List</a>
