BI - 4.0 WEBI Hyperlink & OpenDoc



We are creating WEBI report with hyperlink.

Following is the scenario.

BOM Explorer Report --> Column Name: Material --> Hyperlink to BOM Explorer - Child Report.

BOM Explorer Child report is self hyperlinked i.e. entire tab is same as parent report only CUID is changed.

BOM Explorer Child report has Material number as prompt, which is passed in hyperlink.

Now here's the scenario.

We run BOM Explorer Report for some plant.

Post that when I click on Material id in parent report it navigates to child report and gives output accordingly. Now if I click on material id in child report, it doesn't open child report, it actually navigates back to HOME | Document tab of Launchpad.

If I individually run BOM Child report, it gives output, and while clicking on material id, it navigates to BOM Child report, but this navigation happens only once.


Parent --> Child --> Stop

Child --> Child --> Stop

Below is the hyperlink syntax used in Child Report:

="<a href=\"../../opendoc/openDocument.jsp?iDocID=abcd&sIDType=CUID&sRefresh=Y&lsSMaterial="+URLEncode(""+[Component Key])+"\" title=\"Navigate to child report\" target=\"_self\" nav=\"web\">"+[Component Key]+"</a>"

even if I include sWindow=same, still issue persist.

abcd is the CUID of Child report.

[Component Key] serves as input to WEBI prompt.

Pl. let me know is there something I am missing??
