HYPERLINK Formula Field Issues


I have created 2 HYPERLINK Formula fields which will be populated with the text in another field, just makign it clickable. 

This is working just fine, however, when you attempt to click on the HYPERLINK field, the system does nothing.  

When you right click on the HYPERLINK field, and choose to open in a new tab, it opens an about:Blank page. 

Any ideas what may be causing this?

Here is the formula for the HYPERLINK field for an FYI....

IF(ISBLANK(I_Job_File_Path__c),"I-Job File Path Not Entered", HYPERLINK("file:///" & I_Job_File_Path__c, "Click here for the link to this job's support files."))

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide as this is driving me insane tryign to figure this one out :)

Hi Shawn,

I have tried this formula by making several changes but it seems that SFDC does not allow accessing local or server content using 'file:///'. I have treid creating a link in a VF page also and found the same issue.It appears that SFDC only allows link starting with 'Http' or 'Https'.

I refered to this old post without any help.

Please let me know if it helps.
