Find file, hyperlink to found file

Q: Find file, hyperlink to found file

I am using windows 7 with office 2010.

I am trying to use the text in an adjacent cell, a movie title, search a folder to find a shortcut to that movie title, and have it appear next to the title. I have been searching using Google, using small precise search terms such as "excel macro file" or "excel macro search for file". I have gotten kind of close to what I'm looking for, but not quite there.

Hopefully the code below will give the reader of this post a better idea of what I'm trying to do. I was initially thinking a search routine, but then realized that the path was always the same (all of these shortcuts are in the same folder), so why not just copy the text from the adjacent cell and "build" my own link. That's what the following routine does and it does work ... provided all the movies are the same format, i.e., .wmv, .avi, .mkv, etc., which they are not. As a result the only two choices I have would be to convert all the movies to the same format, which would take for ever, or use a search routine, which I haven't mastered, and where I need some help.
Here is the build your own link routine:
Sub Insert_Hyperlink2()
Dim Hold As String
' Macro1 Macro

Dim wsM As Worksheet, wsA As Worksheet
Dim isPresent As Boolean
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
' Relate the sheets to the variables
Set wsM = Sheets("Movie Info")

Hold = wsM.Cells(10, 4)
ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:= _
"F:\Video\Complete\Single File\" + Hold + ".wmv - Shortcut.lnk" _
, TextToDisplay:= _
"F:\Help\Video\Complete\Single File\" + Hold + ".wmv - Shortcut.lnk"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "ü"
With Range("E10").Font
.color = vbBlack
.Name = "Wingdings"
.FontStyle = "Standaard"
.Size = 11
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = Chr(252)
Selection.Font.Underline = xlUnderlineStyleNone
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
This does work for .wmv files ... and will hopefully give the reader of this post an idea of what I'm trying to accomplish.
Is there a way to use the title, given in this case at "E10", as the search criteria, find the matching shortcut, which can be found in folder "F:\Video\Complete\Single File\", and place it in "E10" as a hyperlink? The terms I've gotten off the internet are .NewSearch, .LookIn, and .FileType, but I have no idea how to use these and they may not be the way to go at all.

Again, thanks for reading and your consideration.

Hello everyone,

Firstly I would like to say that this seems like a swell enough forum as is and I am frankly out of ideas. About a year ago I had backed up a rather large series of files under one name for my roommate who was in the process of doing some "spring cleaning" on his computer. Fast forward to now and he is out of Hard-drive space damn near and has been unable to find the reserve file himself. Below is the directory under which I named and saved the around 200gb file of games and old-ROTC documents. Regardless the file needs to be found and even after un-hiding all files from the control panel, I have yet been able to locate it. It would seem to be simple enough, one would think that you could see the file name sitting above Program Files but it is not. Any one have any ideas, we would rather not have to reformat/ system restore if we can avoid it.

Qualitative Considerations

It is also important to take into consideration the non-financial elements of

replacing the equipment. New equipment and technology may allow CM2 to

operate more efficiently, but a consequence may be layoffs of skilled labor.

A:Hyperlink not working in PDF file

Read other 12 answers

I have a data base of PFD drawings and I would like them to be accessible in a master schedule in excel.

As of now we type in a part # and a cell finds the part description and inserts it in the adjacent cell.

I worked out a way to make a hyperlink in a separate file that links to a folder holding the drawings (FYI, that's 800 hyperlinks !). My schedule sheet then uses a vlookup to find the hyperlink associated with the part number cell. The friendly name of the hyperlink in the intermediate spreadsheet is the same as the actual hyperlink, so the Schedule sheet shows a hyperlink in the cell and will open the drawing.

I'm not a programer but I can fudge my way threw such things. I woudl like to keep it simple:
Can I create a hyperlink in the Schedule that would reference a cell (part number) and find that PDF file (named the same as the part #) in a file folder and be able to hit that cell and open the drawing when needed.

I don't know VB, but I do use macros on occasion.

I hope this is clean. Any suggestions?

Well just updated windows to find I now get this error message when loading up windows;


Could not load file or assembly 'sorttbls.nlp' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find this specified File.

Now this is coming form ATI Catalyst, I know so cause the error message has the new CCC logo. Now what stinks is its apparently something wrong with Microsoft NET, yet I have googled the problem and tried many fixes but with no avail. Right now I am pretty

I've searched the sorttbls.nlp file in my computer, and find that this file should be a component of the .NET Framework 2.

• The AMD Catalyst™ Control Center requires that the Microsoft® .NET Framework SP1 be installed for Windows XP and Windows Vista. Without .NET SP1 installed, the AMD Catalyst™ Control Center will not launch properly and the user will see an error message.
• When installing the AMD Catalyst™ driver for Windows operating system, the user must be logged on as Administrator or have Administrator rights to complete the installation of the AMD Catalyst™ driver.

Please refer:


You can try the steps below to resolve this problem.
Firstly, please go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a program -> Turn Windows features on or off,

• If the checkbox of Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 is been selected, unselect the checkbox first, click OK. Then open the Turn Windows features on or off again and select Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1, click OK.

For the past few days, while surfing the net, I have gotten 404 File Not Found pages. Not the normal kind, these are made to look like they are coming from Google. Moreover, I am getting them in places where I know I shouldn't. For example, I got one while surfing this board. Usually, if I hit refresh or go back and try the link again, the page comes up--eventually.

I get this page regardless of which browser I am using. I've got IE 7.0 and FF 2.0 installed.

On my XP backup batch file, I am doing a comparison of the total files in the source and target directories to confirm they are the same (and consequently everything backed up ok). What I am trying to do is display the final file total line, excluding all of the other file total lines of the individual folders. Additionally, I want to exclude system files from the total, as I am not backing them up.

I am using "dir /s /a-s d:\*.* | find "File(s)"

This give me the total lines of all folders in addition to the final total files and bytes which is the only line I want.

I have used attrib with find /c /v "", which works, however I cannot find a switch with attrib that will exclude system files.

Any ideas?

Any suggestions here would be appreciated but I think this is so bizzare or deep into Windows that I'm not expecting any. I am developing a scheduled task that will run every morning unattended. The script starts Excel and specifies a workbook to open. The 'workbook_open' event runs and when finished, starts another batch file (via Shell(batFile, 1) and shuts down Excel. The 'batFile' starts Access and specifies the database to open. The database runs an AutoExec function and then shuts Access down. This sequence runs fours times for four separate databases. Here's the problem:

When the scheduled task runs under my account, everything works fine. However, when we change the scheduled task to run under the System Administrators account (we have to do this for reasons not important here), the Excel/Access sequence for one, and only one, of the databases does not run. I have isolated the problem to the 'Start' commands for both Excel and Access. What appears to be happenng is that for the Excel 'Start', Excel starts but the 'specified' workbook is not opened, hence Excel just sits there as an open process not doing anything. When I changed the name of the 'specified' workbook, the Excel 'Start' works okay, opening up the renamed workbook. The same thing happens with the Access 'Start' command. Access starts but the 'specified' database does not open, hence Access just sits there ... Read more

In order to recognise which tmp file you should look into, you need to know the CATALOGUE number of the driver you wish to install.

[Guide to finding out the catalogue no.:
Inside of the place where you have your driver setup files (cd, floppy, wherever), locate the .cat file. It should have an icon with several sheets of paper bound with a strip of tape. Windows uses the catalogue file name as the tmp file name. So search through the folders in the above mentioned directory until you find the one with a tmp file by the name of the catalogue file you’ve located in the steps above]

In here you should find a .tmp file. There will be about 4 files, give or take. Open the .tmp file.

This is the file that will give the REAL solution to your problem:

In this file, windows logs its actions while installing the drivers.

Now here's the magic: Windows cannot find the file specified? Cos Either Windows or your Conexant driver witers is stupid.

In an Access 2002 database, we have a hyperlink field on a form. When the user double-clicks on this field, I want to have the Explorer-like file browser pop up automatically; after the user selects the file, the UNC should be inserted as the value of the hyperlink field; and finally, when the user clicks on the filename, it should open the file. The users are totally lost if they have to navigate through multiple steps, and I want to automate this as much as possible.

This all worked just fine in Access 97 when I set the Event Procedure for double-click to DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdInsertHyperlink, then I used SendKeys to remove the Relative Link, open up the file browser, and change the file type to All Files instead of Office Files (the user usually needs to insert a JPG.)

In Access 2002, there are two problems. The first issue is that the Insert Hyperlink dialog box has changed, and there's no shortcut key assigned to Browse For File (it's just a toolbar button). I don't know how to tell Access to open it via code.

The second problem is that even if I manually browse to the file, absolutely nothing is added to the text box and the hyperlink is empty (in the dialog box, the full UNC path isn't showing up; instead, it looks like:
but then when I click OK everything disappears.)

Now I'm sure there is a simple fix for this, but I can't seem to find it. ....

I happen to have two files now that I can NOT delete. I keep getting the message;

This is no longer lacated in C:\Users\RoyBoy\Favorites.
Verify the item's location and try again.
Now, you know I'm looking right at the file (both in Window Explore - the shortcut, and in it's file location) and the item is there. What's the deal! I'll tell you that these are both Favorite Folders file types and they both have files that I'm trying to delete. You see, I tuned up all me favorites & reorganized things alittle and I did this with Chrome. BTW Then, wanting to sync those newly organized favorites to my Favorite Folder, I created a folder caller "Bookmarks Old" and moved all the old favorites into that folder. I opened IE8 and imported the the exported file from chrome and thus repopulated my Favorite folder. Now wanting to delete that "Bookmarks Old" and it will not let me.

Come on - there has got to be a simple fix for this. Please don't even go to the 'complete re-install' line

Hello TSG Forum:

The file
is infected with the [email protected]!enc virus.
Unable to repair this file.
Access to the file was denied.

But, when I go to this directory C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp I can't see any file in there called NAV23.tmp (I have switched on 'show hidden files'.) Also, if I do a scan of that folder (or the entire hard-drive) it comes back virus free. My questions are:

1. Why can I not find the file NAV23.tmp on my computer since the AV says it is infected with a virus.

2. What is going on here? Does the virus copy itself to some other file and delete the NAV23.tmp? Why does the AV scan say computer is virus free? Is something else going on I should know about?

If I try to install a driver and not all of the driver files are present, I will get the error message "The system cannot find the file specified."

(The above example is if you were to update the driver manually. Like if you were to click 'Update Driver', then 'Browse my computer for driver software', then 'Browse' to the directory with the INF file in it, and then click 'Next'.)

In Windows XP, if you received the same error, it would show you the name of the missing file.

My question is this... Is there a way to make Windows 7 display the actual file name it cannot find, like it did in Windows XP?

** Note - I am not looking for help installing drivers, or for alternative means of installing drivers. The above picture is just an example, it's not a driver I am having problems with. I just want to know if it's possible to figure out the missing file name.

A:Which File? (The system cannot find the file specified)

What driver are you trying to update and for what reason? Most of us download the drivers directly from the vendors website.

Whenever I try to drag and drop files from one of my music folders to my "removable disk" (mini mp3 player), i get this error message: Cannot copy >file<: cannot find the specified file. Make sure you specify the correct path and file name. This used to work...so I have no idea what is going on with it. Could someone give me a heads up as to what the crap is going on?
Thank you!


A:Cannot copy >file<: cannot find the specified file...

Have the names of any of the files been changed?

I realize there are many posts on this issue. When I click a Word 2007 document in Windows Explorer, I get the message "Windows cannot open the file (path\name) make sure...etc." Word opens but file does not. With Word open, clicking brings up another instance of Word (without file) and same error. Same as other posts on this issue. Issue does not occur with any other files (Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Acrobat, etc.) Happens with only Word extensions (docx, etc.) If I open Word and open the file from inside Word, all is fine.

I tried saving documents in different Word extensions, saving to different locations, but still get the error--only when opening directly from Explorer or Desktop. I have repaired Office 2007 (Ultimate Version), uninstalled Word, reinstalled Word; tried the registry fix posted here and MS site (removing Data reg entry under Word). Used tool posted here to unassociate/reassociate .docs with Word. I reimaged my hard drive using an image from two weeks ago, but apparently it started before that, because I still get the same error. I reset my index and waited for it to regenerate. I'm sure there might be other solutions I've tried, but these are the ones that come to mind.

It is a three-week-old Dell 1545 laptop, 64-bit Vista. Not impossible to live with, but has me stumped. According to all the posts in networld and here, fairly common problem that seems to have no single solution.

If anyone knows of new tips, I'd sure appreciate it.

A:Windows cannot find file path\file name when opening from Windows Explorer

Error is "cannot find (path\name)...before someone yells. Also, thorough scan for malicious software, trojans, etc. Do not have BSPlayer, whatever that is. Also, if I search for the document in the menu, I can't open it from there either.

This problem is on excel 2003. This is the error that occurs and I have no idea how to correct it. I create a hyperlink in excel and then click on it and get this error:

I have hyperlinked to a .wav file in an MS Word 2007 document, and the sound file plays without opening a media player.

Problem is the sound file is 10mins long, and I have no way of controlling the .wav file once I have activated the hyperlink.

Pressing escape stops the sound, but I cannot pause or rewind.

The hyperlink seems to be opening the sound file as an 'embedded' object that I have no control over.

During a presentation, I need to be able to pause the sound or even rewind it.

Why doesn't MS Word allow me to open the hyperlinked sound file in a media player?

Can you help?

Hello, We have gone to the website
and download the file to open Inside of IE. Once the file is open, none of the links either e-mail or web site works. However, if we open the same file Inside of Google Chrome, the links work. So, we want to know if we are missing something in IE or a plugin.
The PDF file opens with no problem but the links are not enabled. The file works in an Apple Machine and Google Chrome. However, if we download the file physically inside of the computer and then open the file with Adobe Reader, the links all work! Any ideas
how to solve this issue? Thanks Miguel Moreno

A:Windows 7 64bit unable to file missing file in Hijackthis log file

It's doubtful those files are missing. More likely a bug still present in HijackThis where it cannot correctly enumerate some entries, so it gives a (file missing).

I would not put any faith in online analyzers such as that one. Much better to use these online databases


There's nothing wrong with any of those entries. Please leave them alone.

Analysis logs are only to be posted in this section of the forum, not General Security. I've moved it here.

I see no sign of infection in those logs. If you think the machine is infected...

We no longer use HijackThis as our initial analysis tool.

I have been using this same Excel file for many years. I viewed on my new home laptop 2 days ago, using a 2010 Excel Version. It was created on 2007.

I opened it on my work computer, version 2003, and now get the above error message on both machines. The file can no longer be opened.

I have tried emailing it, still won't open.

I have chenged the file type to both .xls and .xlxs neither open.

I downloaded the program on the home page of this site, and it said no file issues, no known problems for this file.

When I click Open File, it still shows where I had the file opened (the file name in lighter gray font - but cannot open.) The original file is in black, and I can open. But, get that message.

I also tried to open and fix - and I tried both options, with formulas, and without formulas, and all it opened was foreign characters.

Any other suggestions? Or is this file gone? Unfortunately, my most recent back up is 3-4 months old...

Thank you for your help,
