    Is there a way to open a Word or .pdf file within Access? I have created
    help documentation and want users to be able to accessit from a data entry
    form.

    or have the event do a docmd.followhyperlink to the
    document name then it will open the file with whatever the suffix says
    it should be. Then you can change it to an html document or a
    spreadsheet or whatever and not have to change the program, just change
    the file name.

    Or you could have it go to a windows hlp file or whatever.
