I have created report Report_A and it contains a field called "Contract Number".

And I created a another report named  Report_B which contains details of contracts.

And it has single value prompt for contract ID.("Enter Contract ID") which is linking field for these reports.

In Report_A an hyperlink is created for the the fleld "Contract Number". and it is linked to Report_B.

Following is url for

http://<server name:port>/OpenDocument/opendoc/openDocument.jsp?iDocID=3477&sType=wid&sRefresh=Y&sWindow=Same&IsS"+ URLEncode("Enter Contract ID")+"==([Contract Number])

While clicking hyperlinked field it runs report and with prompt. and clicked value not passed into prompt.

I don't want prompt and pass parameter directly into linked report's filter.

I am not sure where it is lagging.

Version information.

Business objects 3.1 IX

Web Intelligence

If you need any more pls update.

Kindly help.

Hi Pravin

Change your Infoview to Interactive mode and link the second report to report one so that the hyperlink can be achieved dynamically.Also you can pass the parameter dynamically.

Hope this can solve your problem.
