Crystal Report Hyperlink Problem - Need to use a relative path.

I have a crystal report (built with XI) in my ASP.Net 1.1 web application.

One of the fields has a hyperlink that opens a subreport.

Everything works great, but I am now creating another instance of my application in a different folder and would like to be able to have a relative link.

the link right now is:
"AppSubFolder/reports/Subreport.aspx?Subject=Lessons"

My first pereference is to make this totally relative and just have:
{RELATIVE PATH DIRECTIVE} & "Subreport.aspx?Subject=Lessons"

If it would be possible to tie this to something in the web.config file that would be acceptable as well.

FYI - All ASPX files associated with reports and all RPT files sit in the same folder.

If you have an asp:hyperlink then to adjust on the fly use

<asp:hyperlink id="yourId" ...anything else...  runat="server" />

On the code behind:

yourId.NavigateUrl = "your path";

I am not sure I understand. The hyperlink in on the Main Crystal Report output. I use the Crystal Reports Hyperlink option to link to an ASPX page that displays another crystal report (which pulls just a subset of data based on passing parameters in the HTML).

Another way to ask is -- is there a way to pass the "Virtual directory" name into a crystal report so that I can use it in a crystal report hyperlink.

Is there a way on a Crystal Reports Hyperlink to read from web.config or an application variable?
