    How to modify a hyperlink field in an Access form with VBA ?

    Hello,

    in an access form, there is a hypertext field called "Hyperlink"

    Text displayed = "CCP B 001"
    Link to file = "T: \ CERTIFICATION \ AQ \ DAQ \ DAQ_L \ CCP 001.xlsx"
    Tooltip = "CPP number 1: cooking temperature"

    I want to modify this field with VBA so that it becomes:


    Text displayed = "CCP001"
    Link to file = C: \ TEMP \ CCP 001.xlsx "


    Tooltip = "Temporary CPP number 1: cooking temperature"

    How to do this in VBA please ?

    Thanks a lot

    Alain

    If you get an answer how to do exactly what you've asked for are you going to post back and say something like "it works when it is CCP B 001 but not when it is CCP A 001"? In other words, everything will always be the same?

    Code:
    With MeYourControlName
      .Target ="C:\TEMP\CCP 001.xlsx" 
      .ControlTipText = "Temporary CPP number 1: cooking temperature"
    End With
    Not sure but I don't think control tip text will work with a bound hyperlink field. You'll get the hyperlink path instead?

    I had to look it up because I've never used the property. Go here when you want to know about any Office program and the properties and methods of its members.

    What you specifically want seems to be here in the list of properties
