Hi ,

See attached.
An EXPERT gave this neat utility.

It allows me to insert a hyperlink into my form
Specifically I am inserting a  folder & file name.

However, after saving the record ....  I then click on the hyperlink - it does not open my file...??
Why not?

What is the code that the Hyperlink uses?

Check that to see how its connecting to the folder/file... Also check permissions on the folders in case that has any bearing on it.

Permissions are fine..
It's all a bit odd and is best understanding by actually running the simple form.

(Perhaps if might behave differently on someone else's PC)

Option Compare Database

Private Sub cmdSelectFile_Click()

Me.txtfile = SelectFile


End Sub

Function SelectFile() As String
      
        On Error GoTo ExitSelectFile
          
        Dim objFileDialog    As Object
        Set objFileDialog = Application.FileDialog(1)
          
        With objFileDialog
          
            .AllowMultiSelect = False
            .Show
               
            Dim varSelectedItem As Variant
      
            For Each varSelectedItem In .SelectedItems
      
                SelectFile = varSelectedItem
               
            Next varSelectedItem
                  
       End With
