I need to automatically load a hyperlink from Access Database

I am using an Access Database. One of the fields in my table contains a hyperlink. I use a Form to access the table. For each record I have to click on the hyperlink to open it in Explorer. I would like to have the hyperlink loan automatically ("On Open") each time I go to a new record. Could someone help me with the Visual Basic code to accomplish this?

How to invoke a ms.access using parser


To parse a Text field that contains two words separated by a comma, follow these steps:
  1. Open any existing database.
  2. Create a table with the following structure: Table: Parse2Words
    ------------------
    Field Name: Empl
    Data Type: Text
  3. View the Parse2Words table in Datasheet view and type the following three records in the Empl field: Smith, John
    Callahan, Laura
    Fuller, Andrew
  4. Create the following query based on the Parse2Words table: Query: QueryTest
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Field: FirstName: Right$([Empl],Len([Empl])- InStr(1,[Empl],",")-1)
    Show: True
    Field: LastName: Left$([Empl],InStr(1,[Empl],",")-1)
    Show: True

    NOTE: You can modify the QueryTest query to account for spaces between the two parts in the Empl field. For example, if the text in the Empl field is "Smith,John" without spaces, remove the -1 from the FirstName field expression.
  5. Run the query. Note that the QueryTest query separates the text in the Empl field into the two fields below: FirstName LastName
    --------------------
    John Smith
    Laura Callahan
    Andrew Fuller

Access database was copied now no tables in dropdown list


Your version of Access may require slightly different menus and clicks than mine, but the procedure is straightforward and should be very similar to what you will need to do. Read the whole post first!

Make sure you have permission to modify the database, then go to the form (I assume the drop-down table is in a form) and go to design view.

In design view, click once on the dropdown box you are having a problem with, and a properties screen with several tabs should pop up; click on the data tab, and look at 'data source'. In the list look for 'row source type' to see if the source of your data is a) a table or a query, b) a value list or c) a field list. Most dropdown boxes use either a value list or data from another table or a query (based on a table).

Check the source of data by going down to the next line in the list titled 'Row Source' (this is the list on the data tab that popped up when you clicked on the dropdown box in design view).

If the source is a table/query type you should see some code in the Row Source box like "SELECT....". Without changing anything, click once immediately to the right of the box, and whatever source the rows are coming from should pop up--if a query, for instance, it will pop up the underlying query in design view.

You should be able to troubleshoot the underlying query to see why no data is given in the dropdown box.

Another point where underlying query or table is used: If the table was based on a query that pulls data from the records in the current database, the drop down list will be blank until new records are added so the query has something to list.

And if the source is a 'value list', the values should be included in the row source box below, separated by semicolons. If not you simply need to add them in.

If your source is a field list, go back to whomever copied the database and tell them you need help with the copy they gave you...

Application and example of relationship in access


Relationships

After you've set up multiple tables in your Microsoft Access database, you need a way of telling Access how to bring that information back together again. The first step in this process is to define relationships between your tables. After you've done that, you can create queries, forms, and reports to display information from several tables at once.

A relationship works by matching data in key fields - usually a field with the same name in both tables. In most cases, these matching fields are the primary key from one table, which provides a unique identifier for each record, and a foreign key in the other table. For example, teachers can be associated with the students they're responsible for by creating a relationship between the teacher's table and the student's table using the TeacherID fields.

Having met the criteria above, follow these steps for creating relationships between tables.
  1. In the database window view, at the top, click on Tools ---> Relationships
  2. Select the Tables you want to link together, by clicking on them and selecting the Add Button
  3. Drag the primary key of the Parent table (Teacher in this case), and drop it into the same field in the Child table (Student in this case.)
    relationshipdrag.jpg
  4. Select Enforce Referential Integrity
    refintegrity.jpg
    • When the Cascade Update Related Fields check box is set, changing a primary key value in the primary table automatically updates the matching value in all related records.
    • When the Cascade Delete Related Records check box is set, deleting a record in the primary table deletes any related records in the related table
  5. Click Create and Save the Relationship

How to write jdbc connections


http://www.jdbc-tutorial.com/

window.google_render_ad();

welcome_title_image.gif Java JDBC Tutorial Java JDBC Tutorial
The JDBC ( Java Database Connectivity) API defines interfaces and classes for writing database applications in Java by making database connections. Using JDBC you can send SQL, PL/SQL statements to almost any relational database. JDBC is a Java API for executing SQL statements and supports basic SQL functionality. It provides RDBMS access by allowing you to embed SQL inside Java code. Because Java can run on a thin client, applets embedded in Web pages can contain downloadable JDBC code to enable remote database access. You will learn how to create a table, insert values into it, query the table, retrieve results, and update the table with the help of a JDBC Program example.


window.google_render_ad();
Although JDBC was designed specifically to provide a Java interface to relational databases, you may find that you need to write Java code to access non-relational databases as well.
JDBC Architecture jdbc.jpg Java application calls the JDBC library. JDBC loads a driver which talks to the database. We can change database engines without changing database code.
JDBC Basics - Java Database Connectivity Steps Before you can create a java jdbc connection to the database, you must first import the
java.sql package.
import java.sql.*; The star ( * ) indicates that all of the classes in the package java.sql are to be imported.
1. Loading a database driver,
In this step of the jdbc connection process, we load the driver class by calling Class.forName() with the Driver class name as an argument. Once loaded, the Driver class creates an instance of itself. A client can connect to Database Server through JDBC Driver. Since most of the Database servers support ODBC driver therefore JDBC-ODBC Bridge driver is commonly used.
The return type of the Class.forName (String ClassName) method is “Class”. Class is a class in
java.lang package.
try { Class.forName(”sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver”); //Or any other driver } catch(Exception x){ System.out.println( “Unable to load the driver class!” ); } 2. Creating a oracle jdbc Connection

The JDBC DriverManager class defines objects which can connect Java applications to a JDBC driver. DriverManager is considered the backbone of JDBC architecture. DriverManager class manages the JDBC drivers that are installed on the system. Its getConnection() method is used to establish a connection to a database. It uses a username, password, and a jdbc url to establish a connection to the database and returns a connection object. A jdbc Connection represents a session/connection with a specific database. Within the context of a Connection, SQL, PL/SQL statements are executed and results are returned. An application can have one or more connections with a single database, or it can have many connections with different databases. A Connection object provides metadata i.e. information about the database, tables, and fields. It also contains methods to deal with transactions.
JDBC URL Syntax:: jdbc: <subprotocol>: <subname> JDBC URL Example:: jdbc: <subprotocol>: <subname>•Each driver
