Access 2010 and form hyperlink

I am using Access 2010. The table (PCRR) contains a field with the datatype of "hyperlink."

Now, on the form that is based on the PCRR table, I need to allow the user to browse a particular directory and pull back the filename that they want and place the full pathname/filename in the hyperlink field.

How do I go about setting the default location of the hyperlink to a direct pathname (not using mapped drives and/or search drives).? Again, the user will click on the hyperlink field on the form and the "edit hyperlink" will open to the direct pathname/folders.

The final step is that the user will execule a report and export out to a pdf the report, which will contain the hyperlink in it. This pdf report can then be sent to other people for the information, plus be able to open the hyperlink to the selected file above

Add button to follow hyperlink in table
I am using Access 2010. I have a table with a hyperlink field that links to a word document. I have a form that references back to a query on that table. As I go through on the form to each new record and see the data, I also want the user to have the option to click a view/print button that will follow the hyperlink to the Word document. Seems easy, but I can't find a good way to accomplish this. I usually use macros to accomplish such tasks, but I am not finding anything. I'm not much for VBA code, but could use it if it works.

Detailed: Every record in my table, tblRequisitions, has an associated hyperlink stored in a field "Hyperlink" (the hyperlink is different for each record).

Help in Creating a Hyperlink in a table from Text using VBA
I have two MS Access tables with Field1 set as Hyperlink in Table1, and Field2 as Text in Table2.

I am having problems in appending Table2 to Table1 with the Hyperlink working. The text looks like a hyperlink, but when I appended the table2 to Table1, the hyperlink doesn't work.

If I cut and paste the text into the hyperlink field, it does work.

I am trying to use VBA Code to generate a hyperlink for 80 records in Table2 for Table1.

Is there a function or something that converts the text to a hyperlink ? I believe that when I manually cut and paste, it converts to a hyperlink.

hyperlink buttons
Im using hyperlink to add and look at contracts in my database. The program is designed so an unexperienced user can easily work with it. I want the user to be able to edit a hyperlink by using a button in the form, so you dont have to right-click on it and then choose the right path. I have tried many different ways but I cant get it to work. I also want to have a button that opens the hyperlink instead of click on the hyperlink field. Do you have any ideas as how to solve this problem


Adding Hyperlink to database
I understand that I should be able to make a column a hyperlink field type. However, access is giving me an error code saying.

"Microsoft Access can't change the data type.
There isn't enough disk space or memory."

My database size is 366mb.
I am running Access 2010 on Windows 7 with 6 GB of ram.

I figure that I could use a button to input the field into a browser instead. My Field name is [CONTACT A WEBLINKS 1] However, I can't seem to get the button to work through the hyperlink builder

Hyperlink in memo field
I'm using access 2010. Is there a way to put a hyperlink to a web page in a memo field


Automatically Creating Hyperlinks
this should be a simple one but I am not finding the right sources through searching.

I have a form that is used to input records. One of the fields of the records is Permit #, which is a text field. Another field is Query Link field which is a hyperlink address that goes to a web based database.

What I want to happen is the hyperlink be automatically created in the AfterUpdate method of the Permit # field.

Right now, this is my general approach.

Get permit number from form.
Create hyperlink address from permit number (e.g. http://blah.blah.blah.blah.asp?Q=" & permitNumber)

set form field value to hyperlink (e.g. Me.QueryLink.Value = hyperlink)

This will change the "value" to the hyperlink but will not set the hyperlink address to the hyperlink so nothing happens when you click on it.

Any suggestions on how to set the HyperlinkAddress of the field

Problem creating hyperlink to a sub macro
I have a series of forms arranged as pop-up 'Help' forms which can be called from different parts of my application. Each Help form has a hyperlink (text 'Close') linked to a macro containing a close form action .

(I think this looks nicer than a normal button)This works if I have a separate macro for each form e.g. frmHelp1 has a Close hyperlink which runs mcrCloseHelp1, frmHelp2 has a Close hyperlink which runs mcrCloseHelp2 etc.

Now I wish to tidy this up by putting the the close form actions in one macro with sub macros, I.e. mcrCloseHelp.CloseHelp1[CloseHelp2][CloseHelp3] etc. But the hyperlink does not seem to recognize submacros.

So the hyperlink will work like this:
Hyperlink Address: Macro mcrCloseHelp1
but not like this:
Hyperlink Address: Macro mcrCloseHelp.CloseHelp1

It errors first with a security warning, then an error message:

'Unable to open Macro mcrCloseHelp.CloseHelp1. Cannot open the file.'


Hyperlink to a file folder not working
I have a form in which a user (Data Entry) can put a hyperlink to a folder (not to file in the folder) in a network drive J: and store that hyperlink in a table.

For some unknown reason, when clicking on the hyperlink, the link directs to a local C:\ drive as a default. This problem only happens in some locations where the users locate and use this application. Some other users in different locations can set hyperlink to J: and open the link directly to J:

We all have the same access to that network drive but we are not in the same work location when using the same application (a form in Access).

I am in doubt of the problem is because some set up in Access configuration are different from each work location. Can any one help me to figure out what the problem is and how to fix it
