Launching a hyperlink - Web Design

I have a hyperlink that will not launch the file it's attached to. I can right click the hyperlink and save as but when I click on the hyperlink text it will not open the file. Any idea what's wrong?...

    Carefully check the path, the file name and if there are any uppercase
    letters that shouldn't be there.
    Also, was the file uploaded to the website.

    What kind of file?
    Perhaps you don't have a program associated to that file type.
    Or perhaps the browser blocks it.
    What browser is it?
    And what version of Publisher is the site in?

    Just so you know where I'm coming from this is the first website I have ever
    designed. The file I want to launch is located in the same folder as my
    publisher file. I linked the text in the website to the word doent in the
    same file. When I preview the web design and try to open the doent
    nothing happens, however, I can right click the text and save the file.
    Since I can save the file I know the path is correct, how do I make sure the
    file is uploaded?

    It's a word doent. I just bought my laptop. So I have the latest version
    of Internet Explorer and Publisher 2003.

    When you upload, the pub file is the only one that isn't included in the
    upload. Just the html, gif (and other image files) and any files you want to
    link to. To verify the file was uploaded, just upload it again. If it isn't
    there, it will do it without confirmation. If the file is there, a window
    will pop up asking you if you'd like to replace it. You can say yes or no.

    Now that you re-worded this I realize you are speaking of the external file
    issue. Well doented in numerous posts in this forum and the faq page -
    http://www.publishermvps.com/Default.aspx?tabid=30

    If you want to link to a file outside the publisher doent (an external
    file) then you have to manually upload that file to the web server and then
    hyperlink to it's url.
