I am trying to set up a hyperlink on a field.  The field has data like (office1, office2 etc) and I want to be able to link one report to another based on that field.  IE I have a summary report that has office totals and want to be able to click on the office name to run another report that has the office details.

How can I do this in WebI

Thanks in advance

I don't think you can do it as you desire.  You could insert an ON DEMAND subreport and use the field as a way of opening it.

Unfortunately, there aren't very many WebI experts in this forum - mostly just Crystal Reports and Enterprise (in general).   What you want can be accomplished in Crystal Reports, I'm not sure in WebI as I rarely use it.  If bdreed35 sees this thread, he might have an answer.

How do you do a On Demand subreport within WebI?  Are you talking about Crystal?  I would prefer not to do it in Crystal only because I have already written the reports in WebI.  Any other thoughts?

Ian, he was specifically referring to Crystal Reports, sorry.

It looks like the only way to do this is to create a variable that creates the text of the hyperlink and then use it in the WebI report. (sucks!)  If anyone else comes up with a better solution would love to hear it!

Thanks all
