QuickBooks Needs Mapped Drive Letters

I had a customer that needed to access Saved Filing information from previously e-filed payroll reports.  However, whenever they tried to open the hyperlinked report inside of Quickbooks, they were greeted with a 404 error.

The fix for this issue is quite simple.  Simply map a drive letter to the server instead of accessing the company file via UNC path.  This will let your browser know the link is a file location and not a HTML file.

Here is the link to the original post on the QuickBooks Forum.  Shout out to BettyJaneB for this solution.
