Chapter 27. Access and the Internet > Taking Advantage of Hyperlinks

Taking Advantage of Hyperlinks

Hyperlinks in Access 97 are extremely powerful. They allow you to jump from your application to an Internet, intranet, or file location. Hyperlinks can be stored in table fields or placed directly on forms and reports.

Storing Hyperlinks in Tables

Using the new Hyperlink field type, you can easily store URLs (addresses to Internet or intranet sites) and UNCs (addresses to files on a local area network or a local hard disk) in your tables' records. To create a Hyperlink field, select Hyperlink from the Data Type drop-down list while viewing a table's design. Data stored in the field is used as a hyperlink address.
