    Hyperlink not working

    I have created Hyperlink fields in tables several times and they work as expected. Then, today, I created a hyperlink field in a different table which won't work properly. When I add it to a form, I cannot neither drag and drop into the control, nor select a target object with the Edit the Hyperlink. The control just remains blank. I am totally baffled by this problem. Yes, the form control is Enabled and it is not Locked. I have tried deleting the control and recreating it several times, to no avail.

    Is there something in this table configuration that is messing with the hyperlink?

    We don't know the table configuration.

    If you want to provide db for analysis, follow instructions at bottom of my post.

    Before responding this morning, I tried replacing the sub-form from a backup copy of the db, and found it works just fine. Something must have happened to the form to cause it to no longer support the hyperlink. Who knows what?

    I was attempting to link to a document on Google Drive. When Drag and Drop on Google Drive didn't work, I tried using the Edit Hyperlink feature to select it, but couldn't get it to go to the Internet. After that, I was again unable to put a link into that control. I decided to look at the other Hyperlink options on the Edit Hyperlink pop-up. Among the options was one to remove the hyperlink. Even though no link was showing, I tried that, and the Hyperlink control began working again.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
