Hyperlink.Follow procedure builder

Hyperlink.Follow (Word)

Displays a cached document associated with the specified Hyperlink object, if it has already been downloaded. Otherwise, this method resolves the hyperlink, downloads the target document, and displays the document in the appropriate application.

If the hyperlink uses the file protocol, this method opens the document instead of downloading it.

Optional arguments

The following arguments are optional

NewWindow - True to display the target document in a new window. The default value is False

AddHistory - This argument is reserved for future use

ExtraInfo (Byte) - A string or byte array that specifies additional information for HTTP to use to resolve the hyperlink. For example, you can use ExtraInfo to specify the coordinates of an image map, the contents of a form, or a FAT file name. The string is either posted or appended, depending on the value of Method. Use the ExtraInfoRequired property to determine whether extra information is required.

Method - Specifies the way additional information for HTTP is handled. Can be any MsoExtraInfoMethod constant

HeaderInfo - A string that specifies header information for the HTTP request. The default value is an empty string. You can combine several header lines into a single string by using the following syntax: "string1" & vbCr & "string2". The specified string is automatically converted into ANSI characters. Note that the HeaderInfo argument may overwrite default HTTP header fields
