I cant open certain file types when using hyper links

  Asked By: Steve    Date: May 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 12329

I am trying to open a variety of different files which I have linked using Snag it and the hyper link tool on a picture that I created. When I upload the photo to share point and place it in a web part the linkes going to any .xlsx file work just fine. The linkes that relate to .xlsm or .pptx do not work. The screen opens for a few seconds and then goes away without opening the files.

Have you checked that it is not permission issue or firewall issue?

Try creating one simple html file with link to your .pptx document which you are trying to open from sharepoint webpart, if you are able to open document then probably it has some permission issues within sharepoint site.

It might sound little dumb, but hope you have check the path which is generated by your sharepoint webpart is actually pointing to .pptx file which you are trying to open! If that is incorrect then it has something to do with webpart coding.
