CR HyperLink Not Working RRS feed

  • User261174995 posted

    I have a Crystal Report developed in VS2008 where I tried to format a data label in the details section as a HyperLink.  Right click on the label, format object, choose HyplerLink tab and select "Website on the internet".  I used an X-2 formula that went like this:

    StringVAR URL;
    
    URL := "http://www.blahblahblah.com/apps/claims.aspx?CLIENT=";
    URL := URL & {PTSBYPROCDOS.CLIENT};
    URL := URL & "&MACTNM=";
    URL := URL & {PTSBYPROCDOS.MACTNM};
    URL := URL & "&CLMNUM=";
    URL := URL & {PTSBYPROCDOS.CLAIM};
    URL


    When the report renders, the data label is rendered, but not as a HyperLink.  More specifically, I'm referring to when the report is rendered as a PDF. What do you think I missed?

    Thanks.

    Did you try using a TextObject? Drag your field onto a text Object and set HyperlinkURL

    Thanks for the suggestion; tried that placing by one of the query string fields in the Text Object with my X-2 formula and it didn't work.  More than one of the query string fields inside the Text Object and the PDF report wouldn't render at all.
