Need a control/button in Access 2007to open another document
I am creating a database for work. I am hoping to create a button/control in access that will take a person to the correct Word/excel documents that needs to be completed and printed off for the client. At this time I do not eant to create a merge documet, but that will be coming later. Now I jsut need to get access to open the word or excel document. Can access do this? And if yes, how do I set it up?

You may try this third party tool programmed with best technology the tool support all windows and MS office versions. You may try free demo version of this software to preview your recovered access database. SysTools Access Recovery you may check How tool works and its user friendly interface make this easy to handle.
You'll need to instantiate (create an instance of, or an item in memory) what is known as an ODBC connector. You will also need to create a database or have a database to work with - Microsoft Access will work fine for this, alternatively you can use OpenOffice's version of Access.
The code you'll want to use will be approximately
Dim ws as Workspace
dim db as database
dim strConnection as string
let strConnection= "ODBC;DSN=" & DatabaseName & ";UID=" & UserName
& ";PWD=" & UserPassword
set db=ws.OpenDatabase("", False, False, strConnection)
"The Microsoft Jet Database Engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'"There are several causes for this error message:

error may be caused by a delegation issue. Check the authentication
method (Basic versus NTLM), if any. If the connection string uses the
Universal Naming Convention (UNC), try to use Basic authentication or
an absolute path such as C:\Mydata\Data.mdb. This problem can occur
even if the UNC points to a resource that is local to the IIS computer.

that you have the ability to create and/or destroy any temporary files.
Temporary files are usually created in the same folder as the database,
but the file may also be created in other folders such as the WINNT
folder. For additional information about how to identify which folder
does not have the correct permissions and how to configure temporary

If you use a network path to the database (UNC or mapped drive), check the permissions on the share, the file, and the folder.
Verify that the file and the data source name (DSN) are not marked as Exclusive.
"other user" may be Microsoft Visual InterDev. Close any Visual
InterDev projects that contain a data connection to the database.
Simplify. Use a System DSN that uses a local drive letter. If necessary, move the database to the local drive to test.

It seems that you have your Database(.mdb) file is created in Office 2003.... thats why you are unable to open it in 2007.... I faced the same problem.... then I came back to 2003 in order to use our database......
have to follow few steps.
1. new database - give any name
--> design table
e.g id, name and file (the datatype of the file should be hyperlink other wise it wont work)
--> enter some records (in file field write a, b ,c)
--> when you put record in file field then click on hyperlink option on top.. (like first record id=1, name=fahad, file=A) select the A and click on hyperlink option on top and give the hyperlink of the pdf file
--> design the form
--> run the form
--> click on desired file
--> it will open
--> looks complicated but its easy
I cant assume your level of confidence in programming, however, following are some simple steps you can follow to achieve (for complex implementations, much more time and details will be needed, i can help u with them as well)
1. Create a database in Access ( i assume u r using Access 2003) 2. Create a System DSN (if aren't clear, how to create then goto administrative tools under control panel and you'll find Data Sources (ODBC), here u need to create System level DSN for Access driver (may be Jet 4.0+) 3. In java, you need to import java core libraries for sql (javax.sql package specially) 4. you are almost done, just google for database code in java, simple code will be around 5-10 lines (just for your reference, search with these keywords, ClassName(""), jdbc:odbc:YourDSN) 5. Open a connection using Connection object 6. Fetch the records (select query) using Recordset object 7. You're done.
you can create static data base in Excel works heet and link each cell to another sheet.
or you can create a dynamic data base in access. you need a MS access book. there are lots link you need to understand in order to have a working data base.
