Hello Experts!

I'm using MS Access 2K with Windows XP Professional.

I would like my user to be able to click a link I a simple query that opens a specific form. If this is possible, I would also like to specify a recordsource in the hyperlink.

My application is that I use a module to automatically read bounced email and populate a table with information about the bounced message.  

Our administrator views the table by clicking a command button that opens a simple query.  When a bad email address in our PROSPECT database is suspected, I would like to allow him to click a hyperlink in the query that opens a form tied to that prospect, so he can edit the email address or change it to to inactive.

The form name is frmProspectInfo

When this form is opened, we can select the proper record by setting the recordsource to a specific account.   For example, to open frmProspectInfo with a Recordsource of AccountNumber=123.  (the module that builds the query will look up the account number)

Thanks

You can't do this from a QUERY view, but you can from a FORM. So if you create a Form based on that Query, you could use the OpenForm method:

DoCmd.OpenForm "YourForm", , , "ProspectID=" & Me.ProspectID

Obviously you'd have to modify this to reflect your Forms, Tables and Fields.

Note too that if "ProspectID" is a Text field, you use this syntax:

DoCmd.OpenForm "YourForm", , , "ProspectID='" & Me.ProspectID & "'"
