I have an InfoPath 2010 form and within it I am trying to create a dynamic link.
I have tried a few ways including adding a hyperlink field and attempting to call a field called "filename" into the code but it keeps leading to a blank page.
The other approach was to try and add the "filename"to the end of a URL but I don't know how to call the "filename" value  like the proverbial ID value  in InfoPath as you would in SharePoint Designer.
How do I grab the "field name" value and add it to the URL? So That I can make it dynamic using the field name as the parameter?

I came back thinking the place had improved and there would actually be help like there was many years ago.
Now I pay more and get even less.
No wonder I looked elsewhere.
