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
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.
