Just started with FileMaker and was wondering if it possible to make use of html to include a link to a website within a field. I would like to include the web home page of clients and consultants in each record with a link that will launch my browser and take me directly to their page.

Thanks for your quick response Vaughan. I have tried the URL script, but it seems like the database will end up with a fair amount of scripts to get to all of the web sites, and as the records change, the database will get a bit "dirty" over time with dead scripts that have to be weeded out. Don't know much about html, but I thought using html would make a simple link to the individual web page.

No, you only need one script. Make sure the url is in one field, and the field contains only one, valid, complete address (including the "http://" part). The script opens whatever web site address is in the field.

Can't get any easier than that.
