Crystal Reports Hyperlinks to open in a new page BO 4.0 HELP


Hi Folks,

I have a series of Crystal reports that are being migrated to BO 4.0 from BO 3.1.

These Crystal reports all have hyperlinks to other reports on the enterprise that need to open in new windows. From what I have read the Window=New tag that I'm using currently will not work in BO 4.0. I have also tested this and it doesn't work. However, I have tried in vain to make the supposed replacement Target=_blank to work and it is not working.

I have been told that the only way to get my hyperlinks to work is to create them from scratch, from the anchor <a> level, but to be honest I'm not even sure where in Crystal reports I should even be entering these values. The documentation on this is poor. I thought the solution was to try and create the hyperlinks through Crystal reports 11 using their 'create enterprise hyperlink' functionality but that even includes the deprecated Window=New tag.

So please, can someone tell me how I can get these new window hyperlinks to work?
