Sharepoint 2007: Efficiently create link to document on network folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Whenever a user creates link to a document residing in network folder, the user needs to edit the link (e.g. backslashes, prefix with file://) in order to make the link work. Is there an efficient means to allow the user to  copy a link from the network folder's address bar directly to the create link sharepoint field, where sharepoint automatically changes the link to the sharepoint link format? 

    For example:


    automatically changes to sharepoint readable format:


    such that when user clicks on the link above it opens C:\Public\abc\doc.txt

    Thank you!
