Dear Experts,

with the help of the new Skype Toolbar for MS Office, I'm able to highlight all telephone numbers in excel 2007 and one-click-dial them, yet for some reasons I've no success doing the same thing in Access 2007. As I'm trying to create a personal  telephone book in access 2007 which enables me to record the time/date I've made such call plus notes, I can live with:

1. Code that enable me to one-click-dial in access 2007 using skype
2. Be able to include a sub-excel form in an access form which the numbers can be highlighted by Skype Toolbar, while allows me to use the combo boxes in access 2007

Any other ways which gives similar result will do, many thanks.

Yours Faithfully,

Can you post what you have so far in Access?

Along with that, post the working Excel Spreadsheet.

Thanks

So far I've only managed to do it under Excel 2007. It's automatic, as soon as you've installed the skype toolbar:

The toolbar can change all telephone numbers in any cell of one spreadsheet into: skype:+4416135349583?call&origin=MOTB (the number may vary)

When I paste this on access, it doesn't work.

I am not sure you can just "paste this on access", and have it work.

Your best bet would be to contact Skype.

Hi Jeff,

I've tried it, without success. Thanks for your answer anyway.
