access thread: Hyperlinks in Access forms


Message #1 by joe.dunn@c... on Mon, 24 Jun 2002 16:29:09
I have an Access 2000 database that is to be used for searching for data 
on common software problems. Within each record in the underlying talbe 
there are 2 fields defined as hyperlink. One is used to open a web page 
which gives further data on the problem, the other is used to open a word 
document on our network.

They work as hyperlinks and get the reference documents when clicked but 
they do have drawbacks. The main one is that they minimize Access so that 
when you exit the web or Word page, the Access form that called the 
document is not visible. 

Has anybody else had this sort of problem and does anybody know the answer 
OR a better way of doing the job?
