var sidebar_align = 'right';
var content_container_margin = parseInt('290px');
var sidebar_width = parseInt('270px');
I'm currently designing a form (Access97) and next to a dropdown box I want a to create a link that if clicked on takes me to a Word doc.
The Word doc would give an explanation of the variables available in the dropdown box.
Is this at all possible?
you could try this, as long as the value in the combobox was the same as the file name
Private Sub Label6_Click()
Label6.HyperlinkAddress = "C:\" & Combo3.Value & ".Doc"
Technically it should be possible, the location of the word files may give you some grief if they are stored locally though.
I would have a 'hidden' column in the combo box and have the hyperlinks in there.
Then when the user selects an option the document would be called for.
There may be a better way, but I couldn't think of one, off the top of my head.

Brilliant, it works!!
Thanks very much
Also, just thinking about it even more if they are just word documents you could just use the :
The_File = "c:\your\document\here.doc"
Set Word = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Word.Application.Visible = True
That would work too !
