Need button to open HTML FAQ file

Hey again all!

Implementation is going fabu, but I had a request to add a button on the main form to open the HTML FAQ I wrote. I thought I would be able to quickly point the button to the file using the button creation wizard, but that doesn't seem to work so well. (not at all)

Did I miss something or is this something that needs to be coded with VBA (very little knowledge of VBA here... negligible even.)

Here a function that you can adapt the GetHelpPath is just a string for the path and declared in another Function:

Function HelpFAQ()

    Application.FollowHyperlink GetHelpPath & "FAQ.html", , True
End Function
