Point to attachment in table

Point to attachment in table

(OP)
I have a table called Attachments. This table is only housing a desktop reference and glossary guide. They are very small. My issue is I want to create 2 buttons. 1 that pulls up each from the table in the database so users can read them. I have them on SharePoint right now but they take a decade it seems to load and end-users are complaining about the wait time to view.

RE: Point to attachment in table

You say you want 2 buttons, but only mention 1? Or am I missing something?

For calling an external file, you could use Application.FollowHyperlink, I believe.

Here's a reference that might give you what you need:

Allen Browne has loads of helpful information on his website. I've referred to it many times.

"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 15:57
