    Unanswered: Hyperlink

    Hi it has been a while for me.

    I am trying to link to a pdf document via an access database. What I have done is created a field in my table and I selected "Hyperlink" for the data type.

    In my find form I have that hyperlink field that shows the link to a pdf document (C:\SMIS\San Juan St. Joseph.pdf).

    I created a macro with the runapp action where the command line is (C:\SMIS\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe) on an on click event.

    However when I click on the link acrobat opens for a second without showing the pdf document and then closes.

    What am I doing wrong? Why am I not seeing the pdf file and also why does acrobat show up for just a second.

    By the way if I go directly to the pdf document it opens just fine.

    Can you help me to solve this? Thanks very much

    I would check out the FollowHyperlink or Follow methods to open the document specified by the field.
