    Opening a Web Site from Access (2003)

    I have a command button on a subform that is embedded in a main form for an Access database. When I click it, I want my browser (IE6) to open and show the Google Maps web site (http://maps.google.com/).

    I'll then look at a map or two and close the browser, returning to my Access form.

    Sounds simple, but I can't figure out how to do it.

    In the design view of your form:
    1-click on Command Button form Toolbox, you don't need the wizards
    2-click on subform where you want the button
    3-bring up the properties of the button, on the All tab, the 10th, item is Hyperlink Address, make it: http://maps.google.com/, you can make the Text to display what every you want it to be.
    4-close properties window, your button text should now be blue and when you click it, it should do what you asked.
