I try to use a hyperlink box in a Microsoft Access form (current Office 365) as kind of a workaround for implementing a file drop field as described here. I only need the path of the dropped file for further processing by VBA code – I do not need to store the value into the database. Therefore I switched the hyperlink box to unbound. After that, dropping a file is not possible any more.
Is this by design: drag and drop into a hyperlink box is only enabled for bound hyperlink boxes?
