Hyperlinks are a common feature on the Web. Clicking a hyperlink takes you to another area within a Web site or to an entirely different Web
site. You may be asking yourself, What good is a hyperlink going to do me when I am not on the Web? The answer is easy. You can
use hyperlinks in your databases to:
Open other forms, reports, or queries
Open other applications such as Word and Excel
Jump to a Web site
All of this can be performed without programming. You just have to get comfortable with the Edit Hyperlinks dialog.
Check out this FlipBook to see how a command button is used to create a hyperlink. As you can see, when the hyperlink connects to a form in
the same database just the Hyperlink SubAddress property is filled in. If the form is located in another database or you are specifying a Web
site, then the Address property would also be filled in. For instance, if you wanted to take a look at my Web site, then the Address property
would be set to http://www.appsplus.com.
You can use hyperlinks with command buttons, images, and Label controls.
