Make a label on a form that says Open Site, and then in the Onclick event of the label, you can make it follow the hyperlink.

Create the Label... Label1.
Set the Caption = "Open Site"
Set the OnClick Event to something like this:


Private Sub Label1_Click()
Application.FollowHyperlink Me.httpAddress
End Sub

You can add or edit the displaytext part of a hyperlink field by right-clicking a hyperlink in a table, form, or report, pointing to Hyperlink on the shortcut menu, and then typing the display text in the Text to display box.
