NavigationButton.HyperlinkSubAddress Property (Access)

You can use the HyperlinkSubAddress property to specify or determine a location within the target document specified by the HyperlinkAddress property. Read/write String.


expression. HyperlinkSubAddress

expression A variable that represents a NavigationButton object.


The HyperlinkSubAddress property can be an object within a Microsoft Access database, a bookmark within a Microsoft Word document, a named range within a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, a slide within a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, or a location within an HTML document.

The HyperlinkSubAddress property is a string expression representing a named location within the target document specified by the HyperlinkAddress property.

Note When you create a hyperlink by using the Insert Hyperlink dialog box, Microsoft Access automatically sets the HyperlinkAddress property and HyperlinkSubAddress to the location specified in the Type the file or Web page name box. The HyperlinkSubAddress property can also be set to the location specified in the Select an object in this database box.

If you copy a hyperlink from another application and paste it into a form or report, Microsoft Access creates a label control with its Caption property, HyperlinkAddress property, and HyperlinkSubAddress property automatically set.

When you move the cursor over a command button, image control, or label control whose HyperlinkAddress property is set, the cursor changes to an upward-pointing hand. Clicking the control displays the object or Web page specified by the link.

To open objects in the current database, leave the HyperlinkAddress property blank and specify the object type and object name you want to open in the HyperlinkSubAddress property by using the syntax "objecttype objectname". If you want to open an object contained in another Microsoft Access database, enter the database path and file name in the HyperlinkAddress property and specify the database object to open by using the HyperlinkSubAddress property.

The HyperlinkAddress property can contain an absolute or a relative path to a target document. An absolute path is a fully qualified URL or UNC path to a document. A relative path is a path related to the base path specified in the Hyperlink Base setting in the Properties dialog box (available by clicking Database Properties on the File menu) or to the current database path. If Microsoft Access can't resolve the HyperlinkAddress property setting to a valid URL or UNC path, it will assume you've specified a path relative to the base path contained in the Hyperlink Base setting or the current database path.

Note When you follow a hyperlink to another Microsoft Access database object, the database Startup properties are applied. For example, if the destination database has a Display form set, that form is displayed when the database opens.
