    My current challenge is creating a hyperlink in word from two components in Access - the link and the address. I get the merge info into word, by exporting from Access to a TXT document in csv. Then open WORD and merge the doc with the TXT file to create a form letter.

    I use this code in a Word MACRO to merge with the doc
    Sub CatMerge()
    ' CatMerge Macro   Macro recorded 3/15/2004 by pmh
        ActiveDocument.MailMerge.OpenDataSource Name:= _
            "C:\catsys\mail\catmergeprop.txt", ConfirmConversions:=False, ReadOnly:=False _
            , LinkToSource:=True, AddToRecentFiles:=False, PasswordDocument:="", _
            PasswordTemplate:="", WritePasswordDocument:="", WritePasswordTemplate:= _
            "", Revert:=False, Format:=wdOpenFormatAuto, Connection:="", SQLStatement _
            :="", SQLStatement1:=""
        With ActiveDocument.MailMerge
            .Destination = wdSendToNewDocument
            .SuppressBlankLines = True
            With .DataSource
                .FirstRecord = wdDefaultFirstRecord
                .LastRecord = wdDefaultLastRecord
            End With
            .Execute Pause:=False
        End With
    End Sub
    The LINK and the address come over fine. Right now the user has to fiddle about in the newly created document with CTRL + K to make the hyperlink.

    Is there any way to do this in code behind the scenes?
