In my opinion (of which I have lots!), for consistency leave the hyperlink functionality. I've always enjoyed the option to open copy source in browse or edit mode, and would enjoy the same for opening up the service program module. For those with multiple modules in a service program, would this option be smart enough to open up the correct module? The phrase 'service program' could possibly be removed from the request. This would also be nice to open up a module bound into the program I'm working on (so no service program, but the same functionality).

For an opinion that contradicts my comment about leaving the hyperlink functionality as is. Another option is to have the hyperlink trigger a pop-up window that details which source it will open, then give a radio button or regular buttons to open in Edit, Browse, or Cancel. The same could be done on the /copy line as well - provide a hyperlink that brings up that pop-up.

Of course this isn't my request, but just some feedback on the topic.

Edmund, in my case, there really isn't much gained when the hyperlink takes me to the prototype. From there I manually have to open the source for the procedure. But if the hyperlink were able to open the external procedure source it would be perfect for me.

So would it be acceptable to make that a preference. So that it stays

Would this be something like right-click to Browse/Edit Procedure
