    When I import an Excel file containing hyperlinks into Access, the
    hyperlinks turn into text and no longer hold their links. I am using
    the TransferSpreadsheet function in Access to import my table. I have
    done a bit of searching a come across this code:

    UPDATE tblTest SET tblTest.hyperdocs = "#" & [hyperdocs] & "#";
    (where tblTest = name of table and hyperdocs = name of hyperlink
    field in spreadsheet

    This is supposed to add pound signs around the hyperlink to make it
    active. I am having trouble getting this to work and wanted to know if

    their was a better way to go about it or if someone could instruct me
    on how I enter this line of code into my database. Thanks.
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!
