Thanks it works. But I have another problem. I used the field property as
hyperlink and have a field with lots of records I need to change with a
prefix mailto:
Is there any simple procedure to covert all of my data? Thanks again.

how about an update query?

update MyTable
Set myfield = "mailto:" & myfield;

or something along those lines...

but make a backup copy of your table before doing this... I wouldn't
want to be wrong and have no back door...

Through update query "mailto:"&[email] converts all the emails with a prefix
mailto:
However, clicking the field continues to open the web browser, instead of
email programme. Any further suggestions please? Thanks.
