Chapter 13. Publishing Your Access Database > Hyperlinks in Access Objects

Hyperlinks in Access Objects

Hyperlinks in Access are easy to implement. Although there are other ways to create hyperlinks in Access, you can simply create a field in a table and set its data type to hyperlink. To complete the hyperlink to another object, just type the Internet or e-mail address in the hyperlink field. You are not limited to Internet pages and e-mail addresses, however. Through a hyperlink, you can link to database objects such as a table, form or report, Word document, or even an Excel named range. Assuming the link is valid, clicking on the hyperlink opens the linked object.

You can easily use hyperlinks to navigate around your database. They have many advantages over using macros or procedures linked to command buttons to open Access objects. For example, they are easier to create, easier to maintain, and they adapt well to creating menus. But for some people, the best advantage is that they don’t have to be Access experts to create or maintain them.
