From my research I should be able to use Insert/File/Insert/Insert as Hyperlink to add a link to a network file in my Outlook 2000 emails. But when I go to Insert/File/Insert I don't see "Insert as Hyperlink". When I try to add the link manually by typing file://\\G:\path\path\path\filename.xls (inserting %20 for spaces in the path) I get message: Cannot find 'file:///G:/path/path/path/filename.ext. Note slashes after file: and direction of slashes in the path. It also substitutes %2520 for %20. I had tried %2520 earlier with no success but it seems it is remembering.
What am I doing wrong?

Update- I added <http://www.cnn.com> and it worked fine

Been there, done that. Problem is I don't get "Insert as Hyperlink".
I have Outlook 2002 and just tried and don't have insert hyperlink option either, but I tried Ctrl + K and insert hyperlink dialog box opened.

Ctrl+K didn't work for me. According to "shortcuts" it only works in (2 other MS apps I can't remember).

Thanks anyway
The search goes on.
Did I ever tell you how much I hate Microsoft?
