Add capability for telephone (#tel:+) hyperlinks in Access Tables
Click to dial is available in many applications and all phone apps, but Access does not have the capability to create a clickable Phone hyperlink, as is done for emails. I needed to create a Maro to add this to the current phone field.
I would like the capability to create a Phone hyperlink that automatically adds "#tel:+phone number" to the hyperlink, as is currently done for emails

This could be realized with the current access version via i.e. phoner ..

You could try to create this as a double click event or create a separate 📞button with it:
FollowHyperlink "tel:" & Me.MyTelephoneFieldName.Value
You can use this in the double click event, if unsaved changes to the number are to be callable:
FollowHyperlink "tel:" & Me.MyTelephoneFieldName.Text
For repeated use, it should be put in into a function. Then it can be improved upon in one place easily.
