Access DB Hyperlinks

Hello,

I have created a query in my DB.  I want to add a hyperlink to each record produced in the query that will take me to that record in Form view.  Right now, I can create a hyperlink that takes me to the form, but not one that takes me right to the same record.  

A second thing I want to do is link groups of records in my main table so when I click on a hyperlink, it only brings up that group of records.  Can this be done?

Thanks,
John

Hello jz1english,

hyperlinks retrieve documents not data, so you cannot do what you ask because no document exists containing the data you want.

You can use a form datasheet to display the results of your query and then use a click or doubleclick event procedure for one or more of the displayed textboxes to open the form with the matching data.
