I did it! I cant believe it!
I was trying to fix the problem of the hyperlink issue, changing it from http:// to mailto: if you want to send email by outlook do the following:

1. Temporarily change the datatype of your field to TEXT
2. Run the following update statement (changing the table name and field
name appropriately):

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

3. Change the datatype of y our field back to Hyperlink.

I did it and worked

Automatically Creating Hyperlinks

Automatically Creating Hyperlinks Icon
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

Odd behaviour in email mailmerge from Word Icon
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]#

Hyperlink from Database

I have a sql database where the user input a full web address. I want to display that web address on the web page as a hyperlink. I've done this as a mailto: but for some reason this won't work as just a simple hyperlink.

Write("" & RecordSet.Fields("webadd") & "")

Nothing shows up from the database with this. The data in the database is text.
