How can a hyperlink be useful? Here are some suggestions:

1. Keep a set of directions to a Kingdom Hall:

https://www.google.co.uk/maps

2. Keep the Coordinator or Speakers email address:

mailto:email@address.com

3. You might have a file on your computer with directions and details:

file://path_to_file.doc

The only thing to remember is that the hyperlink is limited to 255 characters. This is a limitation of Microsoft Access. If you find this to be a problem then you might like to consider using https://tinyurl.com/. This is a handy way of making a very long hyperlink into a very short hyperlink! Then you could keep the shorter hyperlink within the database.

Let me know if you need any other URL type added into the drop-down list.

Browse

The Browse button is only enabled when file:// is selected. Then you can simply navigate to the file you want to link to. However the same limits apply as previously stated regarding the number of characters.
