On a form I have a text field called SupplierURL, and I need the value of this field to be passed to a label that is clickable. Right now I have a label created called LabelQMSuppURL and in it's properties under Hyperlink Address I have the field SupplierURL specified. As of now, this at least makes the label blue and clickable, but when I click on it I get an error saying "Unable to open SupplierURL. Cannot open the specified file." Ideas? Thanks.

In the OnCurrent of the form, you need to change the Hyperlink Address for each record.

Me.LabelQMSuppURL.HyperlinkAddress = nz(Me.SupplierURL)

Hope that helps.
