How to change hyperlink color in webi report header

Hi,

In my report header I am giving hyperlink to main report/ home page and I want to maintain report header background color as 'blue or pink'.

Here when I give hyperlink in header that text not visible to the user because of hyperlink text is 'blue' and when I click on hyperlink then that link text is getting 'pink' color . So I want to change the hyperlink text into 'White'. For this I changed the hyperlink text in 'Report properties', but its not reflecting.

Could you please suggest me is there any patch needs to update for this in webi 4.0 SP6.

With Regards,

Krishna Reddy.

    Hi Krishna,

    If you are fine changing it at the report level, if you don't have any other hyperlinks with different color requirements on the same report, then use the below settings in Format Report properties.

    Thanks

    Hi Krishna,

    Check "Read Cell Content As" on you header cell general properties and select HTML and try using the code in below sample code to test it any other cell and once it works you can use color:#CC0000 in your webi generated hyperlink to format it. select the

    ="<html><a href="+Char(34)+"http://scn.sap.com"+Char(34)+" style="+Char(34)+"color:#CC0000;text-decoration:none"+Char(34)+">hyperlink</a></html>"

    Use HTML color code info below to pick the colors that you would need

    Hi Krishna,

    it seems the settings above will not work for your current SP level, check following KBA:

    1863021 - In BI 4.0 the Hyperlink Color settings for visited and unvisited links is ignored when viewing a webi report in the web viewer

    Best regards,

    Victor
