Hyperlink Fields & Why You Should NOT Use Them


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this video, I'll show you how to use the Hyperlink Field data type in your Microsoft Access tables. And... I'll explain why you should NOT use them. I'll show you a better alternative using plain Short Text fields, and how you can still make buttons to easily navigate to those hyperlink destinations.

Brent from Tracy, California (a Gold Member) asks: I have a list box where I am trying to change the font color. I have selected the list box in design mode and selected the color I want on the ribbon and all but one column changes to the color I pick. The one that doesn't change color is a field that holds emails and is a hyperlink field. How can I force all fields to be the same color?

Members

Members will learn how to deal with web page addresses that may or may not have http:// in front of them. I will then show you how to FIX a database that may have been made with Hyperlink fields. To do that, we will learn how to tear apart the complex Hyperlink field type into its individual components with the HyperlinkPart function. We will then use an update query to copy the actual Hyperlink to the appropriate text field. 

NOTE: Members, I mentioned in the first video that I would show you how to browse and pick a file with a button. I totally forgot to do that in this Extended Cut, BUT I did cover it previously in my Images video.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to register on my YouTube Find User page so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!
