    hyperlinks (Access 2000)

    Hello,
    I have a question regarding hyperlinks. I have a form and this form's control source is a query based on one table. On this form there is a combo box so the user can select a part number and then the remaining fileds on the form are filled automatically(I am pulling the data in). The problem is that I would like the field that contains a hyperlink to a web page to be active but instead when the hyperlink is pulled into the text box it is inactive(meaning I cannot click on it) and it is surrounded by the # sign. Is there any way to have the data pulled into a form and have the hyperlink active or available. As always any help is very much appreciated.

    What you're seeing is the text as it's stored in the hyperlink field. You should try to include the hyperlink field in the record source of your form; you can then use a text box bound to the field. It will display a clickable hyperlink.
