Convert a string value in a Query to a hyperlink

I am attempting to create a function that will convert a record id in a query to display a hyper link value.

Not sure if this can be done.  What would be the correct syntax to change the RecId in the query that will inturn be exported to an HTML output.

Would the newly created hyper link remain a link once outputed to the HTML file?

Would I have to create a table first for the hyperlink to remain?

Public Const strLink = "\\path1\path2\EmergentWk\EmergentWork.mdb"
Function HLink(nseq As String)ss hyperlink
    gFP = strLink & "/cmdID= " & gID & ""
    HLink = gFP
End Function

single network - I am currently sending the html file as an attachment - so I would like to either create a link back to the database with record id or include the data within the actual email body with the link back to the database w/record id..

I know I might be asking alot from the system.  I was able to store the hyperlink in a table but it doesn't store the value of the recordid like I want - when I click on the hyperlink Iit opens another page (Url) but does not open Access or even the database.

any more ideas or should I just abandon this approach and leave it to just a link to the database with the attached list?
What do you mean by "exported to a HTML output"?

I am creating a query that will be using as either the body of an email or as a HTML attachment.

I  would like to include a hyperlink value of the record ID so that when the user clicks the link the user will be directed back to the database and its record.  I found code that will allow the Command() function to read this hyperlink, however, I first must convert the RecordID to the correct file path.

Is this database a web database - or is the link purely for use within a single network?
No more ideas, I'm afraid - what you're actually trying to do is quite different from what I thought you wanted to do when I first read the question, and it's not an subject I feel able to usefully comment on.
