Hello Christy,

I'm not sure if it's my headache or not, but I'm having trouble
understanding what you are asking.  Is this the same problem or a new one?
If it's the same problem then I'm confused because I thought the links were
on the schools' website.  Are these actually links in MS-Word for files on
the schools' website?

If you want me to put some links in a MS-Word doc then send the links to my
email (not the list) and I will do so for you.  It will probably be about 2
hours before I'm back, but then I'm all yours.  I'm just waiting for my
wifey to get off the phone so we can finish watching the movie we started.  

Ed

Hi Disaster,

I cannot find a pattern here.  I just tried creating a new document in my 
new Microsoft Office Word program and both links I created had the same 
issue.  I wonder if I sent someone the URL and they tried to create 
hyperlinks in their program and email it to me, if I would be able to open 
the link and after clicking on "ok" when it shows the window I get with my 
passwork and ID info if it will take me there.
