Hi there,am tinuke a software developer.
I use ASP well,but i just started learning PHP/MYSQL.
Is there a way to create a hyperlink data type like we have in MS ACCESS? I need to upoad an address to the database as a link.Pls help :sad:

Hi Tinuke, Did you ever get a mySQL datatype for a hyperlink (as in MSAccess? I have the same problem and can't find the answer anywhere!


few thoughts;

You may try with "longtext" or "text" datatypes in MySQL.

When you choose "hyperlink" in MsAccess, it is treated as String datatype with the length of "536870910". (you may find this, by using oledb connection and load the schema (i have tried in .net dataset))

Thank you,
