Have a look at the action property of your textbox. Here you can say that the action is to jump to a specific URL. For the URL you can insert the following expression: = "http://xyz.com/show_bug.cgi?id=[" & Fields!bug_id.Value & "]"

Please let me know whether this is helpfull.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! It works perfectly. I'm trying to get a handle on reporting services and I couldn't even find this simple answer by googling it. Coming from an extensive Crystal background It's so frustrating to run into small issues like this that take me so long to find answers to. Would you be able to recommend some other resource/book that would be a good reference for Reporting Services?

Hi Brooks,

To be honest I'm also pretty new in reporting services. I also used to work with Crystal reports and I'm still trying to get adjusted to the new environment. By best advice: Microsoft help, Google and Experts Exchange.
So far I used only these resource to train myself on reporting services and so far I always managed to get my reports exactly as I want them :-)

Good luck.
Kind regards,
