Is there a way to include the hyperlink in an PDF from an Access 2007 Report, but only display the Employee Name instead of the hyperlink.

ie in the Edit Hyperlink dialog you can display different value (employee Name) and still have the hyperlink attached.

I know I asked a similar question on ee - see : http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_27904425.html

There is a attached sample of the Org Chart database.  I would like the Org chart to display the employee name, but allow the user to click on the name in the PDF and have the hyperlink activate.  Is this possible.  I know you can do it in a Report layout, but I must export this to an PDF for viewing on the internal Web.

Thanks,

K

Do you have the Hyperlink working on the report now?
(If the hyperlink works in the report, it should work in the PDF)

<I would like the Org chart to display the employee name, but allow the user to click on the name in the PDF and have the hyperlink activate. >
Describe in detail what you mean by "Activate"

Is this just a Hyperlink on the report (in a control, ...IsHyperlink=True )
...or is this data from a Hyperlink "field" in the table...

Got a sample...?

Acrivate - enable - have the link open to the correct location.

I added a new field to the report for the hyperlink and that exports ok to the PDF, however I do not want to actually display the hyperlink just the employee name.

Similar to the way you can in a form - have the employee name, with hyperlink attached and when you click on the employee name it opens the link and changes the name from black to purple indicating that the person c licked on the hyperlink.

I do not want to display the actual Hyperlink, I want to display just the employee name - when the user clicks on the name I want the hyperlink activated and the user is able to navigate to the URL location.
