\\servername\folder\folder\db.accdb

Sounds like IIS security.. I mean I would be super duper annoyed if IIS _WASNT_ default blocking DB access all willy-nilly from a link.

it was my stupid machine -- it worked as expected on others just not mine--

what was expected was they can click the link
it will go to the database however if you didnt have permissions it wouldnt let you open it.

on my machine it was not even going to the db


i had 3 others test and it worked fine on theirs so i guess it is resolved?
