Mail Merge: Clickable Hyperlink

I would like clickable hyperlink on mail merge to actually work. In my access 2003 database the field that corresponds to the Hyperlink is named VideoLink1 and I have made it a Hyperlink type field. However, when I insert the field within a MS word Hyperlink field brackets shown like this:

{ HYPERLINK { MERGEFIELD "VideoLink1" } }

Then merge new document, I am able to see its shown as a hyperlink ie. blue font BUT when the pointer hovers over it, the javascript note as it should says CTRL + Click to follow link and I do that, ctrl and click but the link does not open. Just to make it clear the my links are correct.

Form Field open Default mail client
Access 2003

I have a field on my database that is for email address.

When I display that field on a form I would like it to be a Mailto: link and open up the users default mail client (assuming they use a local client and not web based email).

The field is self in the table is set to "hyperlink"

Is this form by form coding (In other words can I have it clickable on some forms and not on others?). I guess I could just lock the field on the forms I do not want it clickable


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]#

query being used to make mail merge list
I plan on doing a mail merge which will include the case id(s) from the data collected with this query. There are clients who have more than one case id but I only want to send them one letter that lists both cases and I’m not sure how to do that.

Is it something I do within this query, another query or the mail merge document itself.


Mail Merge MultiValue ComboBox

Use a table or query as a mail-merge data source
You can create a mail merge operation by using the Microsoft Word Mail Merge Wizard. This wizard is also available from Microsoft Office Access 2007, and lets you set up a mail merge process that uses a table or query in an Access database as the data source for form letters, e-mail messages, mailing labels, envelopes, or directories.
This topic explains how to start the Mail Merge Wizard from Access and create a direct link between a table or query and a Microsoft Office Word 2007 document. This topic covers the process for writing letters. For step-by-step information about how to set up a mail merge process, see Office Word 2007 Help.

Embedding a Word Document as a template for Mail Merge
I have a word document I am using as a template for a mail merge with data being pulled from a query within my database.

That document is housed ouside the Access file as an independent document, and is tied to the database by a hyperlink.

So far I've been unable to import/embed that document into an Access page so that it can travel with the database and the user can just click on it and the work is all done internally.

I'm assuming it's possible to do what I'm contemplating


MS-Access and Mail Merge
When we talk about Address Labels, Form Letters, Mail Merge and so on, the name that comes into our mind is MS-Word, loaded with plenty of functions for the above tasks. It needs a database to provide source data for address labels, Form Letters etc. We can prepare a Table in Word Document and use it for Addresses or attach one from Microsoft Access or other database sources.
Here, we are not going to use MS-Word for Address Labels, Form Letters and Mail Merge operations, we will do it in MS-Access. Yes, we will try Mail Merge too.

Saving hyperlink from text but, only showing display name on table.
for taking the time and reading my thread.

I have a form that I use to input data into a table. One of the fields in this table is a hyperlink and in that hyperlink field is shows the display name of the hyperlink for example 4201 but when you click it will take you to www.google.com. Is there a way I can use textboxes to be able to put the display name of a hyperlink (4201) and also the hyperlink itself (www.google.com) and save it into one field on my table only showing the display name. Thank you for your time. Any help is appreciated.

note: I also want the display name to be clickable.

let me know if you need more information.
