    I have the same problem, and i tried adding "sWindow=New" at the end of the Hyperlink - and it did not work.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    • To enable the "open in a new window" behavior for the .NET Crystal Reports Viewer, set the HyperlinkTarget property of the CrystalReportViewer in .NET to "_blank". Hyperlinks only need to be formatted using the method Format Text > Format Editor > Hyperlink > Hyperlink type: A Website on the Internet. The hyperlinks do not require any special formatting (such as JavaScript). This configuration option is a global change and will affect all hyperlinks in Crystal reports viewed through the .NET Crystal Reports viewer.

    In your Hyperlink add in the parameter for


    i.e. '∈voiceIndexKey='.....

    You obviously need to complete the Hyperlink fully.

    This should do the trick

      Hi Tim,

      The link Vishal is using is not a typical opendoc link, its actually calling a different application from a crystal report.

      Its like calling a "" from a cryctal report in a new window.

      Let us know if there is any solution from within crystal, like an ability to create javascript for newwindow and pass the url to it.
