Hyperlink in Access report

Hyperlink in Access report

Hyperlink in Access report

Hello and good morning. I am trying to include a hyperlink on a report using the followhyperlink command in VBA.

It is working great when I open the report using acViewReport option to open it. The problem is that I cannot see all the records or seem to figure out how to scroll between the many pages. I only see the first 9 records on page 1 of the report and there are more.

I believe I have tried everything possible. All the other 6 options for opening the report do not work with the followhyperlink command. IE: acViewLayout, acViewNormal, acViewPivotChart, acViewPivotTable, acPreview or acViewPreview.

Suggestions are most welcome and thank you for the assistance.

If the hyperlink is a web address I would export to a PDF and open which looks very much like print preview. You can then click the hyperlinks.

The hyperlink is an address to a Excel file on my local server, not a web address.

RE: Hyperlink in Access report

I am exploring the PDF route now. I was able to export and save it but when I opened it the hyperlinks did not function.

Another item to mention is that I don't want to export or save the report. I just want to open it and have the hyperlinks work correctly.

Thanks a bunch
