    Hi Satish,

    If I understand your request correctly, you would like to link files stored on a network drive (NAS) in WebI reports.

    I managed to insert a hyperlink pointing to a file on a network drive by following the steps below:

    1. Insert an empty cell into the WebI report.
    2. Open the Formula Editor and enter the UNC path of the document within a hyperlink,
      e.g. "<a href="file://///server/path/to/file.txt">Link Alias</a>"
    3. Right click on the cell -> Format cell -> Read content as: Hyperlink.

    However, this seems to work with IE only. Chrome and Firefox are blocking links to remote files due to security reasons.

    Regards,
    Bence
