Hyperlink data fields


Post Author: aboa

CA Forum: General


im currently evaluating Crystal reports XI and I'm completly new to it.

Our databases contain several columns which are holding URI like values ( e.g., file:///x:/foo,
fooServer\temp,, c:\foo\foo.xml, etc. ). These values are mixed throughout each row in a column. So, on the one hand row1.column1 could store a link to a file and on the other hand row2.column2 could store an URL.

Is there a possibility to show this values as links ( blue font color, underlined, etc. ) in a crystal report and most important, is it possible to open this links by clicking them? The links should also be valid after exporting the report to an other format ( rtf, pdf, etc. ).

We intend to create our Reports via the ReportDesigner only and not programmatically ( e.g. .NET ).

Yours Christian!
