    * as literal in a HyperlinkPart expression

    HI



    I have an expression query such as:

    BULLETIN: HyperlinkPart ("http://172.12.317.33/service/ycyc.php?/#/name=" & [TABLE1]![COLUMN6];1)

    When i run it the # is interpreted as a date or number character, not as literal. I Try:

    1) "&"#"&"
    2) \#
    3) [#]
    4) "&""#""&"

    i'M Obtaining results as:

    http://172.12.317.33/service/ycyc.php?/
    http://172.12.317.33/service/ycyc.php?/\
    http://172.12.317.33/service/ycyc.php?/[

    Thanks for the help

    Maybe need to use % sign and hex value for special characters. Review http://allenbrowne.com/func-GoHyperlink.html

    For "#" that appears to be %23

    I suspect that even though the character is coded, the function will interpret the coded character as it normally does and still truncate the result (because it's being passed to the function).

    Maybe use the function 2x and a character code, so that the left and right parts are individually passed to the function but the character isn't involved. Like
    BULLETIN: HyperlinkPart("http://172.12.317.33/service/ycyc.php?/",1) & Chr(35) & HyperlinkPart("/name=" & [TABLE1]![COLUMN6],1)

    I note that your example uses semi colon ![COLUMN6];1
    but I don't think that is the main problem.
    - "doesn't work" is no help. Post err msgs and where.
    - Use code tags for code/sql. Implement changes in copies of your database.
    (humor about talking to yourself apparently was too much for some)
