  • You can have a Single Line of Text field with the Format set to URL.  However, with this approach, any data you enter will be prefixed with with http:// after you enter it.

    So if you enter \\networkdrive\file.xls, and tab off the field, your data will appear as http://\\networkdrive\file.xls which isn't ideal.  This format type is meant for web addresses.
