Run Time Error ’15’ – Can not open the specified file (Application.followhyperlink) -

I am trying to trace down a runtime error that is happening to a few team members while attempting to open a PDF file link from Access. The VBA code is using an Application.followhyperlink to pass a hyperlink to our SSRS report server. The VBA code correctly passes the URL (it works on my machine) which opens a dialogue box (Microsoft Office) asking the user if they, “Would like to open this file?”. What is supposed to happen is that a web browser opens with the link (and then the PDF file opens from it), but instead the code breaks with the error message of: Run Time Error ’15’ – Can not open the specified file.

It feels like the issue is with the web browser security (or windows) security.

We are running Microsoft Edge as the default browser. I have tried to play with the security settings with no luck.

Anyone else experience this or have a solution?

Thank you, Brent
