WEBI Parameter Passing - multiselect prompts - open in excel

I have a WEBI ReportX which has 5 prompts which are all mutliselect. On reportX I want to create a hyperlink which calls another WEBI reportY.

I want the same prompts entered in ReportX by user to be passed as ReportY and the ReportY should open is excel(default).

What should be my syntax of hyperlink and how do I read the host name dynamically so that I dont have to update the link when I move content from DEV->TEST->PRod

      One is string FacID = [abc, def, ghi] and end user can select one value or multiple.

      Whatever user selects should be passed to next webi report.

      Can you please give specific full syntax of URL?

    Hi Vishal,

    Refer below link to create a open doc link

    https://www.google.co.in/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&sqi=2&ved=0ahUKEwiZjpK2x7DMAhWCpR4KHSe3AegQFggxMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pieterverstraeten.com%2Fblog%2F%3Fdownload%3DHow-to-create-OpenDocument-URLs-with-SAP-BusinessObjects-BI-4.0.pdf&usg=AFQjCNF5AE_OpPUxP9db2rOXaOmgBib1hA&sig2=Q8SlS1ZOiMQVvqyOMwmg_Q&bvm=bv.120551593,bs.1,d.c2E&cad=rj

    you should not select the option "Use complete URL path to create hyperlinkā€¯

    If you select the option it will hard code the hostname of the current system in which you are creating the document link. But the host name changes from dev to Qa to pod so unselect this option so that it works in all the systems

      Divya,

      I dont want to behave like a drill down report on click of one data cell.

      In Report A - there will be a hyper link 'Export to Excel' on click of that link I want to open ReportB in excel format directly.

      Same set of all input parameters need to be passed from ReportA to ReportB

      I also tried the above approach by creating a blank cell in report header and I get #MULTIVALUE. The ReportB report doesnt open up.
