    Take a look at FollowHyperlink in the Help file.

    BTW, it's generally considered appropriate to put some details into the body
    of the post, not simply fill in a subject. Information such as what version
    of Access and even what version of Windows can make a difference to the
    answer.

    Note that I'm assuming you want to open IE to a specific URL. If not, that
    should also be made apparent in the body of the post (because the answer
    will definitely be different!)

    In Access 2003 on Windows XP, I'm trying to launch a Internet Explorer to a
    specific URL from the Access switchboard. I have selected "Run Code" for the
    switchboard command and am stuck on the function name.

    Not sure it's possible using the switchboard (but I'm not certain as I never
    use it).

    It is possible through code, though, using the FollowHyperlink method as I
    indicated earlier. I suppose if you wanted to, you could create a VBA
    function that uses FollowHyperlink, create a macro that calls that function,
    and call the macro from your switchboard.

    When the switchboard doesn't directly support what you want to do, create a
    sub/func/macro to do the job and let the switchboard run that.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
