Access 2010 and form hyperlink

Access 2010 and form hyperlink Icon
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

Adding Hyperlink to database

Adding Hyperlink to database Icon
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

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
