(Posting on behalf of a customer that is having trouble posting).

All of our users expect the following behavior:   When they click on an item hyperlink (such as on the name field) that the document will open in edit mode, just like it always does when opening a document from their desktop or a file share.

However, I have not been able to get a field 'link to' to open a document in edit mode - it is always read-only which is extremely frustrating for users and causes the initiation of many angry support calls.


How can I build a 'link to' string for a field that will reproduce the function of your 'Edit Document' button?
