  • Hyperlink - No Program Registered

    I have a hyperlink to a PDF file, that when clicked gives me the usual "Some files may contain a virus..." warning, but then gives me a "No program is registered to open this file." message...
    I have the latest Adobe Reader installed, and the file opens without problems from any other location (just not from Excel)...
    Other hyperlinked file types open fine from within the same worksheet.

    PDF is listed in Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types, and is associated to Adobe Reader...

    Any ideas?

      You could try using the Shell command to open up Adobe, then have the macro follow the hyperlink. That MIGHT work?

      The problem might be related to your network security?

      I was able to follow a hyperlink in Excel to a PDF document, which opened it automatically, without any warning or problems.

        That seemed to be it... although Adobe Reader was registered and worked within Windows, it did not from within Office...
        I re-installed Reader, and it came good in the Office environment.

        Thanks again Gents!
