    Hi Arvin
    Can you help me, I'd like to be able to dial a number from the Access 2003
    database 'forms view' by clicking the telephone field or a button beside it.
    I have tried but I get nowhere. Is there a tutorial a fool like me can
    follow? By the way, I need to dial 9 before the number.

    Thanks
    David.

    All you need to do is open the form in Design View and open the toolbar. Now
    make sure the wizards are turned on (the wand on the top right corner). Add
    a command button and select Miscellaneous from the list. Now select
    Auto-Dialer and your almost done. Make whichever adjustments that you need
    for your form.
