    Hi Mahendra,

    If you apply hyperlink by using opendoc, it will prompt the user to select a value

    If you use document linking you don't get prompt

    Hi mahendra,


    In your link include port number

    2.Document link

    In preferences change web i to interactive then you got document link.

    3.You want to pass the "rundate" dim val from parent rep to child rep and the child rep should run based on that date....

    use "rundate" prompt in child report then you get data as per your date report .

    Thank you
