Hi,

1) Is there a way to access items in list with different column instead of ID column?

Say I have Projects and Tasks lists.
Projects list has the following columns: ID, ProjectName,ProjectNo,LinkToTask(if any)
Tasks list has the following columns: ID,TaskName,ProjectNo,TaskNo

2) From Tasks, I can use the lookup to link ProjectNo but how can I create a link on Projets to hyperlink to Tasks?

This should be possible.

I have checked this configuration and it works. Make sure that TaskNo and TaskName are text fields. You can create lookup fields that reference number, text, datetime, some computed and calculated fields.
