Default Hyperlink created in Access does not function when printed to pdf

I have a database in Access 2007 in which I created a field that hyperlinks
to Google Maps for an office location. In Access database, the hyperlink
works perfectly. When I print the report to Adobe PDF, the link cannot be
accessed. I have a similar field that opens our e-mail program and generates
an e-mail. THAT works, but the hyperlink does not.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance.

You could use a different pdf printer driver. For example win2pdf will take
any text that looks like a hyperlink and change it to an actual hyperlink in
the pdf file.

I assume the "out of the box" pdf capabilities do not work as well.

HTH,

I've had some luck with the "Save as PDF or XPS" optional plug-in for Office
2007. Saving a report as a PDF that way seems to preserve hyperlink
functionality, even though printing to AdobePDF does not.
