Using Access 2007 I have a table field defined as a hyperlink.

Resolved Question:

Using Access 2007 I have a table field defined as a hyperlink. Using the table's form I can key in a google link:

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=6205 Stuart Rd Fort Belvoir VA 22060

The link works when clicked on and brings up the google map for the address.

If I use an update query with the following expression as the "update to" to populate the field:

"http://maps.google.com/maps?q="&[DrillAddress2]&" "&[DrillCity]&" "&[DrillState]&" "[DrillZIP]

The field in the form looks exactly like the one keyed in but it is inoperative.

Any knowledge of this out there?

Thank You

Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

Can I look at the Access File please? It may be easier?

- Click the following link: http://www.wikisend.com
- Upload the file to that website
- Once it is uploaded, the resulting page will display a "File ID" number.
- Please, give me that "File ID Number"

There is sensitive data in the data base that I wouldn't be allowed to distribute like that. I'll have to put together a sample without that. It won't take long.


 


Thank you

No problem and thanks

It's a 14.8MB file but it doesn't seem to want to upload there. I've compressed it and can email.

I guess this will get you to the file "units.zip"

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thanks Vinson,

I am off at the moment, but will look at it Sunday for you, just tell me which Form I am looking at please.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The form is "Unit Codes".


 


The field is labeled "Map"


 


Data Source is Table "Unit Codes" Field "UnitMap" which is defined as hyperlink.


 


Keying in a URL works. Populating with update query produces exactly what is keyed in but the link does not work in that case.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Hi Vinson,

My apologies for the delay.

I had to code a small workaround. It now works when clicked and will open the Google Maps Webpage to that location.

You can download it here http://ge.tt/5FibsCe/v/0?c

If you have any difficulties at all, please do not hesitate to let me know so I can assist you further

Thank you

Thanks,


 


Is there any explanation of why populating that field with a concatenation expression doesn't work while keying that data in the field works?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Not to be found, and this is the first report of this problem.

It is going to be a specific bug within Access (there are many Vinson), and this one has not yet been published by Microsoft.

If you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
