Can you pass parameters through a Hyperlink to another web site using data
from your access DB.

I want to pass address info from my database to mapquest. Basically to map
a location from my
DB. Can this be done?

Introduction to LinkFree URLs: LinkFree works by using a HREF
statement to software on the MapQuest Web site. Information about the map is
passed to the software through the URL, by appending any number of
parameters and their values separated by the ampersand character (&).
Linking Restrictions:


a.. The MapQuest page you are linking to may not be displayed in a
frame set.
a.. The MapQuest page you are linking to may not be displayed in a new
browser window.
General URL Parameters: The following parameters may be included in
the URL.

Example: http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?

city=denver&state=CO&address=1565+california+st&zip=80202&country=us&zoom=5


Parameter Description Examples Req'd

city The city for the center point of the map. Denver Yes
state The state for the center point of the map. CO Yes
zip The zip code for the center point of the map. 80202 No
country The country for the center point of the map. US No
zoom Map zoom level, where 1=national and 10=street level 1 through 10

If ZIP code doesn't match the other information, it is ignored.
