    Hi Janelle,

    Why change to hyperlink data type? You can do this with a

    Application.FollowHyperlink "string"

    to answer your question (I saw it awhile back too), I know
    of no way to CHANGE the data type through code (don't use
    ALTER), but here is one solution:

    1. add field though code
    2. use UPDATE query to move data
    3. delete field through code

    Warm Regards,
    Microsoft Access MVP 2006

    Have an awesome day ;)

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!
