    Im trying to have a button to where when pressed it goes to a url. However,
    I am needing it to take a textbox entry to complete the URL. Such as:

    The final URL would like like this:
    //videosrv/directory/directory/b[textboxentry]/plans

    Then it would go to that [textboxentry]'s folder on the server.

    Can you help?

    Use a normal text datatype field for this, not a hyperlink field.
    On the form, code the control's Double-click event:

    Application.FollowHyperlink "//videosrv/directory/directory/b" &
    [textboxentry] & "/plans "
