Custom Opportunity Fields

Hello All:
 
I have a couple more questions on the custom opportunity fields....
 
1)  I see the max length is 450.  I would have thought that this would have changed the field to show or display multiple lines, but it did not.  How do I make this field display more than one line.
 
2) On another custom field, I would like to format it be a phone number.  There is a field format text box.  How do I format a custom opportunity field to be formatted for a phone number?
 
3) The field triggers on custom opportunity fields are grayed out.  Is this not an option for this type of field?
 
4)  I see that one of the field data types is a url address.  Does this have to be in a www.***.*** format.   I'm looking to have a field that allows a link to a network directory.  Is this possible?
 
Many thanks,

Re: Custom Opportunity Fields

On no. 4 above, I can't get this to work.  I put a network file address in the field,and ACT! launches internet explorer.  Is it not possible to have an opportunity field be a link field?  If so, what am I doing wrong?

Try like that
file://C:\Folder\TestFile.txt

to open Windows Explorer rather than Internet Explorer
