    All,

    I have a table in Access that it linked to a SharePoint Database. There is
    a field in that table that is a hyperlink field. The hyperlinks all use
    display names and point to other documents in the portal. I need to be able
    to exclude all rows where the hyperlink target address is a .pvw file in my
    query, but I can't get that to work.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    SELECT tblTest.TestURL
    FROM tblTest
    WHERE (((tblTest.TestURL) Not Like "*.pvw*"));

    The only problem I see with the above is that if you had a file name
    something like "somefile.pvw.txt" it would be excluded too. I can't think of
    a solution to that other than avoiding more than one "." character in a file
    name.

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!
