I have a report with a hyperlink column that works in SQL Report Builder 3.0 desktop, but not on the website where it's shown.

1. 'Website_Domain' field is the shortened URL (domain) is the text seen in the Report column
     (technet.microsoft.com)

2. 'Website_Url' field is the full length URL which is used in the 'Go to URL' properties
     (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159106.aspx)

['Website Link' Expression]
=Fields!Website_Domain.Value

['Website Link' Column Properties]
Action = Go to URL
Selected URL: [Website_Url]

Can you try adding an additional column to the table and set up the action on that one to see if that helps?  (I came across people explaining similar issues and in some cases recreating the same report worked.)

Update:

Still not working your way either. I have another report using the following expression and it works!

      =Iif(LEN(Fields!Website_Url.Value) > 8, "Web Link", "")

Solution:

1. Use the following expression and replace the static Text with a Field Value:

      =Iif(LEN(Fields!Website_Url.Value) > 8, Fields!Website_Domain.Value, "")

2. Set 'MarkupType' to 'None' (...links don't 'click' if set to 'HTML')

      MarkupType = None
