    Report Hot Link in PDF

    I have a need to add to add some hot links to websites in Access reports. I've inserted a logo in a report and set it's Hyperlink Address. In Preview mode the report hot link works great. However, I need to output the report to pdf (I'm currently using the PDF/XML addin from Microsoft). So far I've not been able to make the pdf recognize the logo as a hot link. The pdf will recognize a URL string as a hot link.

    Appreciate any thoughts on getting a the logo hot link to work in a pdf.

    I could not get it to work in my experiments using the PDF/XML addin, nor using BullZip PDF printer
    .
    But for me it did not work in Preview Mode either. In Preview Mode clicking anywhere in the report just changed the zoom factor. But if I switched to Report mode it worked.

    John,

    Thanks for the feedback, I anticipated as much. Now looking into switching from pdfs to xps output as it will support the hotlinks. However, thus far I've not found a way to combine multiple xps docs into a single one via vba.
