Convert text to Hyperlink

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 Issues
I am having trouble with my hyperlink field to a pdf document. The user sets the hyperlink themselves by clicking btnGetLink and searching for the file. When the user selects the file, the hyperlink is put in the txtLink text box which is bound to my table.

The hyperlink in the text box works fine when copied into windows explorer (when I go to edit hyperlink and select the hyperlink, not the actual text in the text box) but clicking on the hyperlink itself yields an error message "An unexpected error has occurred".

Here is a sample hyperlink address:"K:\Common\User\David\Signed Leases\Lease528.pdf" The K: drive is the cloud network drive which I am also running access off of.

[CODE]

If anyone could provide some assistance as to why clicking the hyperlink yields an error message, that would be great!

Hyperlink address into the text box
I have a hyperlink field which shows the path to a directory full of PDF files.

e.g.

c:\pdf\test.pdf

I then have a form set to continuous. A text box is shown on each row and the source is the hyperlink address. When I click in the text box, on the hyperlink address, the PDF opens .

To get the hyperlink address into the text box, I do the following. Right click, then select hyperlink and then edit hyperlink. I can then select the file to add.

My problem is that the right click action does not work in my finished application which users use. I have to open the application by holding the shift key (kind of amend mode). I can then right click and it works.

Why does the right click not work in my finished application?


Imported data not recognizing email address hyperlinks
I have a database that I import Excel data into. After importing, the email addresses do display as hyperlinks (the data type is hyperlink, and the text is blue with an underline), and they appear to act as a hyperlink - when I hover, the little pointing finger appears as I click the text.

The problem is that the text is not an actual hyperlink. After it's clicked, nothinghappens.

Adding Hyperlink into Textbox with Text
Is it possible to combine a hyperlink with text data in the same textbox. For example, If I wanted to have a field that contains hotel information, and I type the name of the hotel and add a link for directions in the same textbox.

Can one textbox contain both text and hyperlink data? Or would this have to be two different fields?

About compressing the data in a Text, Memo, or Hyperlink field (MDB)
Microsoft Access 2000 or later uses the Unicode character-encoding scheme to represent the data in a Text, Memo, or Hyperlink (Hyperlink data type: A data type for an Access database field that stores hyperlink addresses. An address can have up to four parts and is written using the following format: displaytext#address#subaddress#.) field. Unicode represents each character as two bytes, so the data in a Text, Memo, or Hyperlink field requires more storage space than it did in Access 97 or earlier, where each character is represented as one byte.
