Using a hyperlink, can I pass a value from a report to an external program?


I want to call an external program from a report using a hyperlink where the hyperlink needs to take a value from the report, a customer number. This customer number will be sent to the hyperlink which will use it to bring up that customer's record for editing. I actually have a batch file instead of an html file, and I want to send the batch file a customer record. The batch file calls an external program which accepts the customer number and brings up the customer's record for editing in a windows form. I don't have to use a batch file. I could use a link to an html file so long as I can pass the html file the customer number.

Thank you for your help.
