    Unanswered: Linking to PDF file using a string field?

    Hi. I'm using access wiht an sql server back end. I basically want to have a field in a table that has a link to a pdf file.

    What I need is a way to browse to that file and then create a shortcut for it. is there any data member in access that will bring up a browse dialogue? I don' t want hte users to have to manuall enter the directory/file location.

    Thanks in advance.

    Use a Common Dialog Box to browse.

    I'd say then just store the location and then use a Shell command maybe to open the file on your event of choice.
