Re: Hyperlinks within resource files
 

Hi folks, I recently came across an explanation from Microsoft that seems to explain this behavior. When you click on a hyperlink to a file from a MS Office product and that file is protected via a Single Sign On site, Microsoft sort of "forgets" that you tried to access the original file and leaves you at the home page.

Our workaround is to save the original Word/Excel file as a PDF. That seems to do the trick!
