Hyperlink

For this experiment, I created a word document that I saved and then I created a form in access using the wizard. Now I am going to use the hyperlink to find the word document that I created. First I clicked on the icon that stands for insert hyperlink - it is the globe with the link. After I clicked on Insert Hyperlink, the screen below appeared. I used browse to find my word document. Text to display originally contained the path to the file. I changed it and then clicked on Screen Tip to type in the Find out course name tip. The screen tip is the hint that comes up if you leave the mouse on the link without clicking it.

The results of this are shown below:

When I click on My Courses, the word processing list comes up. There is a blue arrow at the left on the toolbar that can be used to return.

When you are in the Word document, you can make changes to the document. Note that the same techniques can be used to link to an Excel spreadsheet.

Save for the Web

In the next example, I saved the table that I created for the previous exercise as a HTML file. The steps are: Select File, Export, in the save as type select HTML and give the file a name, then click the save button to save. The screen below shows the form after the file has been saved.



Crstable is now viewable in a browser.

If when I saved this table, I had saved it with the save formatted default checked, I would see a different version of the output (see the screen used to create the original html of the located of save formatted).

When the HTML output options request for a template comes up, skip it because you are already specifying the format of the table and you will get a format like what you get in access.
