Can I put a Link field in a form?

P: 41
Dear Community

I am working on a database in which several persons with their details and possible seminaries they can visit are included. For each person, we have two important documents that should be linked with the database (MS Access).

My question is, if I can make a field or a command on the form in/with which the enduser (person who does only use front end) can Link the two documents (both documents are saved on the computer of the end user) with the access database when the specific person shows up in the form. The documents and the Links to the documents are for each person different.

Thanks for helping me!

Hi Mike

Add a new field data type "Attachment" to your table of T_Kontakt. That allows a number of attachments to be made. Read up about limits on file sizes.

Dear Phil

Thank you, that works perfectly! Can I hide/turn off the Mini Toolbar when I hover over the attachment field in the form? I just want the user of the form to be able to make an attachment by doubleklick and not with the Toolbar...

I have never worked with attachments, so can't say, but I suspect not. However the DoubleClick is the same as clicking on the paper clip.
