    Unanswered: Hyperlink address for network file into email (never the answer) Duh

    Never mind... I got it. Using the Name property and .Hyperlink.Address.

    Can someone help me with the code to obtain just the hyperlink address from a hyperlink field?

    The value as pulled from the Access hyperlink field is:


    For the email I need:


    I know how to build the "<File://" & filelink & ">", but not how to get just the filelink portion of the hyperlink field.

    Thank you in advance.

    You can use the HyperLinkPart() Function to get the HyperLinkAddress Part of the Value from an Hyperlink Field.

    Example: xy = HyperlinkPart(myhype, acAddress)

    Sample code that searches for a Model code in Table and when found extracts the HyperLinkAddress part from the HyperLink Field and sets the Value on the HyperLinkAddress Property of a Command Button for Opening a .PDF file from Net, when clicked, is given below:

    Private Sub cboModel_Click()
    Dim myhype, xy As String, xcboModel
    Dim db As Database, rst As Recordset

    xcboModel = Me![cboModel]

    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rst = db.OpenRecordset("tblModel", dbOpenDynaset)

    rst.FindFirst "ModelID = " & Chr$(34) & xcboModel & Chr$(34)

    If Not rst.NoMatch Then
    Set myhype = rst![Hlink]
    xy = HyperlinkPart(myhype, acAddress)
    Me.cmdPDF.HyperlinkAddress = xy
    End If

    End Sub
