"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is an answer from a PAQ:

Add a label with the following properties:

Name = lblHyperLink
Font set Underline
ForeColor = Blue
MousePointer = 10 - Up Arrow

And add this code:

Private Sub lblHyperLink_Click()
  Const cLinkVisited As Long = vbMagenta
 
  Shell ("cmd /c " & Chr$(34) & "Start " & lblHyperLink.Caption & Chr$(34))
 
  lblHyperLink.ForeColor = cLinkVisited
End Sub

I add a label to my form and double click on it, then in the code section, I add:-

ShellDocument "http://www.webaddress.com"

Of course, you should change the label text colour to dark blue and perhaps underline it too so it looks like a hyperlink

Oh, and using the same as my comment above, you can use the mailto feature, such as:-

ShellDocument "mailto:someone@somedomain.com"
