How to change http:// to mailto: in hyperlink

I did it! I cant believe it!

1. Temporarily change the datatype of your field to TEXT

name appropriately):

UPDATE HyperLinks SET HyperLinks.EmailAddress = "#Mailto:" &

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

Odd behaviour in email mailmerge from Word
I have an an Access database which allows the user to select data to be available for mail merging via Word 2007. It selects the required data into a temporary table which word connects to via an ODBC connection.

This works fine for standard mail merge (letters, envelopes, labels) I have been asked by the charity I created it for to also use it for mailmerging into emails. The data in the temporary table contains an email address (as a hyperlink) and when that hyperlink is clicked it opens up the default client as expected.

In the mail merge process, at the end stage when the emails are sent to Outlook it fails because what is sent as the address is (for an actual address of [LINK]) [@email]#mailto:[@email]# which Outlook does not recognise. Iwould have expected the address sent only to be like mailto:[@email]#

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.
