Hi, Nick.

I want to insert a hyperlink into a table field
using VBA Code.

To insert a record into the table, try:

Private Sub InsertRecBtn_Click()

On Error GoTo ErrHandler

CurrentDb().Execute "INSERT INTO tblHyperlinks (HypLink) " & _
"VALUES ('Text to display#" & _
"C:\Data\MyFile.txt##" & _
"C:\Data\MyFile.txt');", dbFailOnError

Exit Sub

ErrHandler:

MsgBox "Error in InsertRecBtn_Click( ) in" & vbCrLf & _
Me.Name & " form." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
"Error #" & Err.Number & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & Err.Description
Err.Clear

End Sub ' InsertRecBtn_Click( )

. . . where tblHyperlinks is the name of the table, HypLink is the name of
the field, "Text to display" is the text string to be displayed in the
hyperlink field, and C:\Data\MyFile.txt is the path to the file.

HTH.
