Maybe a simple answer but i am trying to link in a grid to a local path eg C:\Folder\File.xls from a database field but the link does not seem to work. it seem to put File:/// in front of the path making it unusable.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

I guess you picking the file name through a form.
If yes, it is normal to have the file:/// prepositions. It is used, when you want the browser to open a file file for you. If you want the file name without this prefix, then you have the option to get the rigth part of the string using this

You have to give the string and the position (length of the prefix) where you want the remaining part of the string.

Put it into the before insert/before update event.
