Setting a field as an e-mail portal

P: 3
I have a text box created in my database form where you can insert a hyperlink - which will open up a webpage or powerpoint or word doc or excel doc. What I want to do is insert ANY e-mail address and it starts outlook. I know I can go into design view and insert my e-mail address and it works, but then it appears in the following new pages as well. I want this to be an individual address for each and every page. Is that possible?

To do this you will have to bind the control with the email address to the recordset of the form. In other words create a field in the table for it.
