In Microsoft Project, when you type a path to a file (such as C:\mydocs\Project1.mpp) or a Web address (a URL such as www.microsoft.com) into a text field such as Text1 or Notes, the text may not automatically change into a hyperlink.
This problem occurs when you type the path or Web address without a prefix, such as file: or http://.
In text fields Text1 - Text30 and the Notes field, Microsoft Project requires a prefix such as file: or http:// to distinguish the text as a hyperlink.
To work around this problem, type a prefix such as file: followed by the path to the file. For example, type file:C:\mydocs\Project1.mpp.
Microsoft Project recognizes and changes the following prefixes into hyperlinks:
