Linking file to drop down list


Not applicable
The main focus on my forms is to create a dropdown list hopefully to display the name and link to another file on the same drive. And to open this file.

I have tried the dropdown list with the go button that seems to work on HTTP paths, but when I setting up a URL to the file, it does not work.

I am using the Hyperlink insert command to create this URL that I copy into the field items.

I have also put different descriptions in the Field items, went to the binding tab, Enabled "Specify Item Values" and put this URL there to the file.

Nothing seems to work.
