this is really pretty straightforward.
Create a field for the url
Set the field value with a function
concat( "http://static url path PID=", pidvalue)
Then add a hyperlink control which uses the field as the value.

Then you have a dynamic hyperlink.

Hi Clayfox,

Thanks for the quick response. But can yu please provide some more directions?

no VB!

Just need a rule to set the field value or make it a default, it depends on your form setup.

Then just add the hyperlink control and go to properties and you can use the function button on both the display and the value portions of the hyperlink.
