What would be the best way to link pdf files in an Access database form?

For each record there could be more then one pdf file. I would like to automate the process as much as possible. The pdf file would exist on a network drive and the user would need to go to their record in Access and then link the pdf files.

I started but am having problems with Access not opening the pdf file, it will open word files but not pdf,

Report Hot Link in PDF

Report Hot Link in PDF Icon
I have a need to add to add some hot links to websites in Access reports. I've inserted a logo in a report and set it's Hyperlink Address. In Preview mode the report hot link works great. However, I need to output the report to pdf (I'm currently using the PDF/XML addin from Microsoft).

So far I've not been able to make the pdf recognize the logo as a hot link. The pdf willrecognize a URL string as a hot link.

Hyperlinking in Access 2000 to .pdf

Hyperlinking in Access 2000 to .pdf Icon
In my job I am linking .pdf files to an access database (Windows 7, MS Access 2000). I have already done thousands, and it is an ongoing project.

My issue is that in linking I open the “Insert Hyperlink” window, click on the “File” button, which opens a “Link to File” window. The default that is in the box “Files of type” is Office Files.

For every link I have to change it to “All Files (*.*)” and it would save me so much time for the default to be “All Files (*.*)”. Is there any way tochange the default for this?

Buttons links to multiple pdf files

Buttons links to multiple pdf files Icon
I am building a database for my department that is made up of all the Suppliers our company has. I just have one simple table where the information is being pulled from onto a form that the employees can read and find the information they are looking for.

However, there are 3 links I want every record to display that are unique to that supplier.

These links are PDFs that we have scanned into our system and are sitting in a share folder. Right now I have the buttons hyperlinking to the folder instead of linking it to the actual PDF because for me right now it is a static thing and every record in the form will link to the same place.

Is there a way where I can make these buttons supplier specific and have them link to a different PDF for every record/supplier.

Printing linked files (word, pdf etc)

In order to open files with a cmd button: [code]

This works fine, and I can choose a relative link (relative to the database) or a direct link (c:\folder\file.docx).

I would like to proceed a bit, and also print the linked files from a button, and preferably without opening the files, Or perhaps, as Windows when right-clicking on af file and click Print (opening the file, print it, and close it again).

Split Database Hyperlink Fix?

Split Database Hyperlink Fix? Icon
I inherited an unsplit DB at work. It's been running very, very slowly lately. I have now split the database into a front end and backend. but I noticed the hyperlinks are broken.

Our item master table had a link field that, on click, would open up the PDF drawing files on the system. Unfortunately, the links appear to be setup as "\Drawings\.pdf". Instead of "\\\Database\Drawings\.pdf"

Hyper link

I have a database in my pc with more than 10,000 records. Most of the records were linked with hyperlink to pdf files.
The hyper link was c:\workfiles\data
Now I moved my database to the company server with all data and hypelinked files.
The new location is oa-server1\eng\workfiles\access\data
the problem is that the hyperlink is not working any more and I need to re-link each record again.
My question: Is there a way to tel access to find the new location of the linked files.

I'm trying to add .pdf files for easy access to an existing inventory database, without duplicating the entry since 1 .pdf may correspond to multiple inventory entries already in the system. pdf's seem to be the hardest type of file in incorporate into an Access Database so any help would be wonderful. Am I missing something completely simple here?

Create one PDF file from many Documents

Create one PDF file from many Documents Icon
I have been scratching my head about the best way of doing this for a few weeks now and just wondered if any one who is clever than I can assist!

I have a folder with multiple files in, some .doc, .pdf , .msg, .jpg and I was wondering if there was anyway of producing a single pdf file of of these. It would have to be automatedand I will be doing this multiple times.

I have managed to get the list of filenames into Access and into a table (thanks to Allen Browne!).

I think there are two ways of doing this.

1. Create a PDF of each file in the folder and then merge them together

The problem I see with doing it this way is how do you create a pdf of a file that isn't open(aka the .doc)? Or create pdf of a jpg from within Access?

2. Create one file, no merging, of each of the files.

Often you want to save your files so they cannot be modified, but you want them to be easy to share and print. Examples include resumes, legal documents, newsletters, and files intended to be read and printed. PDF and XPS formats can help.
