Chapter 2. What Every Developer Needs to... > Access Tables and the Internet

Access Tables and the Internet

Microsoft has made it easier to develop Internet-aware applications by including the Hyperlink field type and by allowing users to save table data as HTML. The Hyperlink field type lets your users easily store UNC or URL addresses within their tables. The ability to save table data as HTML makes it easy for you or your users to publish table data on an Internet or intranet site. The sections that follow cover these features.

The Hyperlink Field Type

By using the Hyperlink field type, your users can store a different UNC or URL address for each record in the table. Although you can type a different UNC or URL address directly into a field, it's much easier to enter the address by using the Insert Hyperlink dialog box (see Figure 2.24). Here, users can graphically browse hyperlink addresses and subaddresses, and the address is entered automatically when they exit the dialog box. To invoke the Insert Hyperlink dialog box, choose Insert, Hyperlink with the cursor placed in the Hyperlink field, or click the Insert Hyperlink button.
